Places to Pray takes readers to Catholic churches, shrines, convents, and monasteries throughout Missouri where readers will explore the architectural marvels of the cathedrals of St. Louis and Kansas City and visit neighborhood parishes that proudly hold on to the ethnic flavors of their founders. There’s a story of a shrine built from thousands of stones by a monk who died at his task. Cloistered sisters committed to lives of prayer and silence open their doors to us and monks at a Trappist Monastery in the Ozarks show off their world-famous fruitcakes.

Also included are chapters on topics unique to Catholicism which are often misunderstood, even by Catholics: the veneration of Mary and the saints, the Rosary, holy relics, Stations of the Cross, Imaginative Prayer, Eucharistic Adoration, the Infant of Prague, and miracles.

Places to Pray is intended for readers of all faiths and walks of life who are tempted to venture into some of these places to experience realms beyond those offered by daily life. This event is free and open to the public. Books for signing will be available for purchase.

Television producer, printmaker, and author Patrick Murphy has spent the past 40 years telling stories of the American heartland. He took a year to visit every corner of Missouri, exploring its Roman Catholic history and culture. His photographs and stories are a delight for readers of all faiths. Murphy is the author of Candymen: The Story of Switzer’s Licorice and The Irish in St. Louis: From Shanty to Lace Curtain. He and his wife Anne are members of Our Holy Redeemer parish in Webster Groves, Missouri.

Local tour guide Dea Hoover brings her expert eye and love of the city to this one-of-a-kind experience. Once you’ve embarked on this St. Louis scavenger hunt, you’ll never see the Gateway City the same way again.

Born in Hannibal and raised in Vandalia, Missouri, Dea Hoover knows her way around the backroads of Missouri.

In 2008, Are We There Yet?, LLC expanded its operations with the acquisition of St. Louis’s first local receptive tour operation Discover St. Louis, LLC, founded in 1975. She is also the best-selling author of STL Scavenger. Dea and her husband Declan live in The Hill neighborhood of St. Louis where she plays in a league at the Italia-America Bocce Club. She is a voracious reader attending two book clubs and participating in all events to do with history.

Learn why St. Louis is the soccer capital of the United States from Dave Lange, author of “Soccer Made in St. Louis: A History of the Game in America’s First Soccer Capital." The story of soccer in St. Louis reaches at least as far back as 1872, when Irish and Scottish immigrants played the game, then passed on the sport to generation after generation of St. Louis-born players. The results: 90 national championships; 34 players, coaches and administrators in national soccer halls of fame; 78 players for the United States Men’s and Women’s National Teams; and today’s St. Louis CITY Soccer Club, which plays before sellout crowds in a dazzling facility that has remade Downtown West. This event is free and open to the public. Books for signing will be available for purchase.


Dave Lange has covered soccer for various media outlets since the 1970s. He wrote or co-authored: Practice Makes Perfect: A Guide to Fun Training Sessions for 6–10 Year Olds, Cherishing Childhood, The First 100 Years of Community School, Webster University: A Century of Defining Moments, and Taming Troubled Waters: Dr. Henry Givens Jr. and the Transformation of Harris-Stowe State University, all from Reedy Press. He contributed a chapter to Soccer Frontiers: The Global Game in the United States, 1863–1913 (University of Tennessee Press, 2021). 

Lange coached youth soccer and holds a USSF National D coaching license and a coaching certificate from the Royal Dutch Football Association. He is Senior Lecturer at the University of Missouri–St. Louis and Adjunct Full Professor at Webster University.
