Ethnic St. Louis Highlights Rich Diversity of St. Louis
Hear from the book's authors, Elizabeth Terry, John Wright and Patrick McCarthy, on March 15 at noon.

Authors of the book Ethnic St. Louis, as well as Webster University faculty members Kristen Anderson and Lionel Cuille, will discuss the book and the diverse history of the people of St. Louis on Tuesday, March 15, at noon in the Webster University Library Conference Room. Dean of University Libraries and editor of Webster University Press Laura Rein will moderate the discussion.

In the 250 years since the founding of St. Louis, the city has grown into a rich tapestry of cultures. Ethnic St. Louis takes a closer look at the history of the vibrant multi-ethnic city. From the early colonization by French traders, the influx of German and Irish immigrants and the more recent arrivals of Bosnian immigrants, the book examines the cultures that have shaped the city.

The book is co-published by Webster University Press and Reedy Press. Copies are available for purchase at Webster University’s Library front desk or via Webster's secure online site.
