We knew we were in for a little different atmosphere at our St. Peter's, Missouri reading when we walked into the store and saw that the sign advertising our appearance had a piece of paper shielding the cover. The sensitive eyes of suburban St. Louis must be protected. Photos found here, if you can take any more.
Considering the reading was on Valentine's Day in the suburbs, we had a pretty solid crowd, all told, and we even got to talk obsessively about Rick Ankiel with people who actually understood. (Kind of.) And it allowed us to do the site today mere yards away from the Gateway Arch, and that's always a positive.
But anyway: Thanks, St. Peters. Next stop: Mattoon!
