Book Review: The Missouri Almanac

By Todd Fuller - Missouri State Teachers Assoc.

February 8th, 2018

As a kid, visiting our local bookstores was an exciting opportunity especially around the holidays. Colorful, coffee table books were always displayed prominently and my mom would allow me to pick a new one every year as a Christmas present to the family. Large, heavy books filled with distant islands, exotic birds and animals of the jungle all spent a year holding our interest and sparking conversations in the family living room.

Today, finding colorful coffee table-like books is more a challenge and the notion that such a book with its sole focus on Missouri seems hard to even conceive. Consequently, I was very surprised to come across “The Missouri Almanac 2018-19.” “Missouri Almanac,” published by St. Louis publisher Reedy Press, is filled with all things Missouri.
