Left Bank Books is Saint Louis' full-service independent bookstore. We offer friendly, experienced service and value our customers as part of our family. Over the years, Left Bank has become an integral and irreplaceable part of the local cultural, political and literary community. In May 1996, we launched the Friends of Left Bank Books Literary Society, a membership organization to which patrons subscribe. The friends program provides booklovers with another way to support independent bookstores.

Membership in the Friends of Left Bank Books has many rewards. Two private sales per year more than cover the cost of the annual membership for most. Private receptions with authors like Calvin Trillin, Anthony Bourdain, Amy Goodman, Rick Bayless and David Sedaris, to name a few, have been memorable experiences for many.
Friends memberships come in three tiers to fit your needs and budget:
* Access to twice yearly members-only, store-wide sales: 25% off!
** Our members-only receptions usually take place in the hour before an author's public event and give our friends members a chance to meet their favorite authors in a private setting.
*** Aside from the summer and winter friends-only sales, members at the Editor and Publisher levels enjoy year-round discounts on all purchases.
