Show-Me a Bicentennial

Thursday, Jan. 19, 2023 @ 7 p.m.




Join us as author Beth Pike presents a program on her 2022 book, Show-Me a Bicentennial. Pike was part of the Missouri 2021 core team that organized, promoted and carried out more than 300 events and projects statewide for the Missouri Bicentennial in 2021. The presentation will highlight the projects and events leading up to and through Missouri’s bicentennial, including photos and stories from the My Missouri 2021 photo exhibition, Missouri Community Legacies, the Missouri Bicentennial Quilt, Missouri Explorers and the Bicentennial Poster Contest, as well as photographs submitted from the 300-plus projects and events that took place to commemorate 200 years of Missouri statehood. Limited copies of the book will be for sale at the event for cash or check purchases only.
