Hosts and Friends of the Missouri For The Book, Jake and Yvonne Thackeray, were keen to suggest the tiny village of Urquhart become the first honorary international chapter of the MCB. Headquarters: Main Street. Phone Box operational, but no Voice Mail. The MCB Board has enthusiastically embraced this sister chapter. May it be the first of many handshakes from Missouri book people to friends around the world. Sandy, The Wandering Bookman stands at the ready.
