Robert Hansman

Wed., May 30, 7-8 p.m.
phone 314-821-5770
rdrinkard@kirkwoodpubliclibrary.org

In the early 1950s, Pruitt-Igoe, a vast public housing project, arose on 57 acres on the near north side of St. Louis. Barely 20 years after construction, the 33 eleven-story buildings that made up the complex were razed, and the vacant land that was once home to thousands of people was gradually reclaimed by a dense, neglected urban forest. What happened in-between is a story that tempts but also defies simple narratives. Robert Hansman's book Pruitt-Igoe is a story of interweaving and competing accounts, both then and now. This volume approaches Pruitt-Igoe with all of its contradiction in mind. free

In Growing Up with the River, you will meet children from nine generations who grew up along the Missouri River from Hermann to St. Charles and share in a long list of adventures and changes they see in the river valley. Growing Up with the River is by Dan and Connie Burkhardt and illustrated by Bryan Haynes. What hasn’t changed in two centuries is the natural scenic beauty of Missouri River Country and the small river communities that sprung up along the river and the railroads. The Arch, one of the most recognized symbols in the world, was created to be a lasting symbol to the Missouri River and the history that unfolded along its banks. free
