MO History Museum Librarian at Saturday Writers

I'm so looking forward to tomorrow's Saturday Writers meeting to learn about research resources available for writers at the Missouri History Museum Library. History has always been an interest of mine, and local history is especially fascinating.

At the June 26 Saturday Writers meeting, Emily Jaycox, Librarian for the Missouri History Museum Library, will give a special presentation about research resources and collections. According to their website, "The Missouri History Museum’s research collections contain unique regional history sources and objects documenting St. Louis, Missouri, the Mississippi and Missouri Valleys, the Louisiana Purchase Territory and the American West. "

If you live in the metro-St. Louis area, the Saturday Writers meeting times on June 26 are from 11 am to 1 pm at the St. Peters Community and Arts Center, 1035 St. Peters-Howell Road. Meeting is free for members of Saturday Writers. Visitors may attend for $5. For additional information visit
