Although many wonderful books have been written about individual icons and attractions, it seems that there are few that celebrate ALL the elements that make St. Louis unique, fun, delicious, exciting and home. There are books about the Arch, our city’s founders, explorers and rivers, and books about our sports teams. However, as we investigated, hunted, shopped, and searched, we just couldn’t find one that tied it all together. We believe that Goodnight St. Louis is that one book.
St. Louis truly has so much to share. A city of neighborhoods and neighbors, world class sports, accessible music and theater, historic landmarks, public art, and well-tended green spaces. It is a city and a region with a wealth of offerings and we felt it was high time to boast about our home town. We hope you think so too.
When creating Goodnight St. Louis we had a vision. We wanted whimsy, but at the same time, we wanted readers to easily recognize each landmark and attraction. We wanted the illustrations to spark fond memories of readers’ visits to the Arch, the Zoo or City Museum, for example. We also felt it was important to encourage readers to visit places they may not have been …the Old Courthouse, the cathedrals, or one of our city’s many festivals and parades. Get out there if you haven’t been and see what you are missing!
We thank you for exploring our website. It is our sincere hope that local or visitor, young or old, you cherish St. Louis and ALL the things that make our city home. Goodnight St. Louis!
Julie and June
