The National Mississippi River Museum and Aquarium hosted a nice event tonight -- a book-signing featuring more than 30 authors.
The event featured several authors with Telegraph Herald ties. My tablemate was TH columnist and editorial writer Amy Gilligan (above), whose collection of columns continues to be a local best-seller.
Also present were free-lancers whose columns appear in the TH: Katherine Fischer, Bob Byrne, Kevin Koch and John Tigges. Around the corner was ex-TH reporter Becky Sisco, as was former TH photographer Jim Shaffer, who has collaborated with Tigges on several local history photo books.
It was an enjoyable evening. The two hours went quickly.
