St. Joseph Stories

A book about St. Joseph's little known stories gets recognition at an upcoming program.

Communications Professor at Missouri Western State University John Tapia assigned his students to write about lesser-known historical sites in town for a class project. The project ended up including stories from local historians and others. All those stories resulted in the book, "St. Joseph Anthology: Little Known Stories of Our Town." Rolling Hills Library Publicity Assistant Alan Stolfus says the stories in the book focus on things other than what St. Joseph is normally known for in history.
