The Saint Louis Tales by Mitchell Doub


The Saint Louis Tales by Mitchell Doub

An ancient parchment with a dark secret. A hit-man who looses his nerve. An ominous deal made out of desperation. A tree house like no other. A trash dump with the power to change 15 lives. These are The Saint Louis Tales. Come along as Mitchell Doub, a native of North Carolina and a lover of the short story, invites you to join his group of modern-day pilgrims as they take a trip up the Mississippi on a restored, 19th century steam boat. While on their way to Saint Louis to attend the Southern Baptist Convention, this merry band is transformed from complete strangers into fast friends as each member takes center stage during dinner to share their own, original tale. O.Henry isn't the only writer known for twists, and seeing as Mitchell grew up less than 25 miles from where Mr. Porter was born, it's no surprise that the final sentence in any of these tales may change the whole story.
