Elaine Viets once wrote a snappy little column about life in St. Louis for the old Post-Dispatch; now, she writes snappy whodunits, but she keeps it real by setting them in St. Louis (you can take the girl out of the south side, but you'll never take the south side out of the girl). The latest Josie Marcus murder-mystery, High Heels Are Murder, is in fact set in Maplewood. Viets keeps things realer than real by selling and signing copies of the book from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Schlafly Bottleworks (7260 Southwest Avenue, Maplewood; 314-241-2337 or, because both Josie and Elaine like Schlafly beer. Ah, she's already married! Darn. Well, go anyway, because a portion of the book and beer sales go to help the St. Vincent Home for Children.
