Krist’s latest book, “Old Souls & Timeless Places,” won Best Travel Book of 2020 in the Lowell Thomas Travel Journalism Contest sponsored by the University of Missouri School of Journalism.
“With a camera in hand, Bob’s infectious smile and affable demeanor instantly open doors for him,” said Spencer Saunders, founder of the Phillips’ Mill photography exhibit. “The stories he tells and the photos he shares from inside those doors are mesmerizing. Bob could take a trip to the sound of the hardware store and look spectacular!”
