Many famous people, past and present, have ties to St. Louis. Charlie Brennan's Here's Where uses anecdotes and interesting facts to explore these well-known as well as little-known St. Louis connections. Eleven easy-to-read neighborhood maps pinpoint events and people, with coded symbols helping the reader differentiate between existing and no-longer-existing sites. Locals and visitors alike can pick a favorite famous person (listed alphabetically and by subject) and find the related landmark-where bombshell Betty Grable or poet Maya Angelou were born, or where Tennessee Williams got inspiration for The Glass Menagerie. Other notable entries include significant people from our past, such as Mark Twain, T. S. Eliot, Tennessee Williams, and President Harry S. Truman, as well as big names from more recent times, including Tiger Woods, Regis Philbin, Kate Capshaw, Stone Phillips, Ronald Reagan, and Yogi Berra.
