Readers of the Post-Dispatch
are familiar with columnist Bill McClellan
. His detractors claim that he only writes about lowlifes, or more charitably, losers. And whats wrong with that? People in trouble, or down on their luck, or a half-bubble off level theyre still people. You might not want to have ´em over for dinner, but a little visit with ´em over morning coffee via Bills column is not a bad way to start the day. McClellan discusses the people whove made his column at 12:15 p.m. today in room 229 in the J.C. Penney Conference Center on the campus of University Missouri-St. Louis (1 University Drive and Natural Bridge Road; 314-516-5699 or www.umsl.edu/~cfh
). His talk is entitled Characters Ive Met, and it promises to be a quirky, rewarding start to UMSLs Monday Noon Series of cultural lectures. Admission is free, and light refreshments are provided.
