St. Louis in Watercolor: Living History in the Gateway City Illustrated Marilynne Bradley and written by Jennifer L. Grotpeter

Artist Marilynne Bradley has spent half a century immortalizing and updating treasures of St. Louis landmarks in the vibrant pigments of watercolor. This collection of local scenes, beautifully captured in paint, documents the pleasures of the good life in St. Louis—the applause of a good play, the sounds of music, the satisfaction of a gourmet meal, the cheers of a crowd at a sporting event, and the beauty of St. Louis’s unique architecture. Writer Jennifer L. Grotpeter captures the essence of the image in animated memories and offers the reader a connection with the culture of St. Louis.

About the Author

Jennifer L. Grotpeter is a graduate of Kirkwood High School and a 25+ year resident of Webster Groves, MO. The annual Turkey Day Game between these two rival towns is thus awkward for her and she just cheers for everyone. She has held a variety of jobs, volunteer and paid, over the years, from intrepid girl reporter to high school teacher to law enforcement dispatcher. Jennifer finds work most satisfying when it is of service to others, and hopes that this book will help visitors find beauty in the architecture and history of The Lou, and will show locals that there is still much to learn about and discover in the metro area we all call home.
