Through its “Show Me Missouri” Speaker’s Bureau program, the Missouri Humanities Council brings Missouri-centered lectures and programs to both non- and for-profit organizations, such as civic organizations, museums, historical societies, and libraries. Lectures are given by expert historians, storytellers, researchers, and authors who are eager to share stories about Missouri’s culture, history, art, and people with the public. This MHC initiative is presented jointly through the State Historical Society of Missouri, which is located on the campus of the University of Missouri – Columbia.
Organizations interested in hosting one of the Speaker’s Bureau programs should fill out a Speaker’s Bureau Request Form and mail it to the Missouri Humanities Council at 1800 Baltimore, 1S, Kansas City, MO 64108.

- “The Haunting of Missouri,” Mary Collins Barile
