I love reading about regional history. So it comes as no surprise that the latest book from my good friend Dianna Graveman and her wonderful husband Don is at the top of my most-wanted reading list.
Don and Dianna's "Legendary Locals of St. Charles" has recently been released from Arcadia Publishing and the History Press.
In my opinion, the Gravemans themselves are local writing legends, having published four previous books about local history.
Don is a former St. Charles County Historical Society board member, and Dianna's writing is solid gold. She is an award-winning author, an editor, and an amazing public speaker. Both are passionate and knowledgeable about the topic, so I know the book will be great.
I was also thrilled to learn that "Legendary Locals of St. Charles" is included as one of five recommended reads for February in Alive magazine, which features "the latest in St. Louis arts, culture, and community happenings."
Check back later this month for my interview with the Gravemans and a review of "Legendary Locals of St. Charles."
