Book Signings

On Saturdays we host local authors for book signing events. The schedule is listed below.  You can find the entire collection of author events in a binder on the bookshelf at the

 Ballwin Cafe. Our first book signing on September 24, 2011 was a children's book, 

"Who Let The Mongoose Loose?"  written by William Tyler.  We have hosted over 110 authors at the cafe since that first book signing in 2011.

What's With St. Louis?

Why are turtles incorporated into the wrought iron fence at The Old Court House? Can beaver be eaten during Lent? Why are pieces of metal track imbedded in some local streets? Who is Sweet Meat, and should he be avoided? These and other questions about St. Louis routinely perplex both natives and newcomers to the area. In this updated version of her 2016 book, author Valerie Battle Kienzle continues her quest to find answers to some of The Gateway City's most puzzling questions.
