LBB Presents ONLINE: Rev Al Sharpton with Martin Luther King, III - Rise Up

Monday, September 28, 7pm CDT
Private Online Event - Book purchase required

Left Bank Books welcomes renowned activist and speaker
Rev Al Sharpton,
who will discuss his new book,
Rise Up: Confronting a Country at the Crossroads,
on September 28 at 7pm CDT in a private online event. 
Rev. Sharpton now will be in conversation with
Martin Luther King, III.
This is an exclusive event that requires purchase of
from Left Bank Books for admission.

 

A rousing call to action for today's turbulent political moment, drawing on lessons learned from Reverend Sharpton's unique experience as a politician, television and radio host, and civil rights leader.

When the young Alfred Charles Sharpton told his mother he wanted to be a preacher, little did he know that his journey would also lead him to prominence as a politician, founder of the National Action Network, civil rights activist, and television and radio talk show host. His enduring ability and willingness to take on the political power structure makes him the preeminent voice for the modern era, a time unprecedented in its challenges.

In Rise Up, Reverend Sharpton revisits the highlights of the Obama administration, the 2016 election and Trump's subsequent hold on the GOP, and draws on his decades-long experience with other key players in politics and activism, including Shirley Chisholm, Hillary Clinton, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and more.

Beginning with a foreword by Michael Eric Dyson and closing with Rev. Sharpton's moving eulogy for George Floyd, Rise Up offers timeless lessons for anyone who's stood at the crossroads of their personal or political life, weighing their choices of how to proceed.

Rev. Al Sharpton is the host of MSNBC’s “PoliticsNation” and the founder and President of the National Action Network (NAN), one of the leading civil rights organization in the world. With over 40 years of experience as a community leader, politician, minister and advocate, the Rev. Al Sharpton is one of America’s most-renowned civil rights leaders. Sharpton also hosts the nationally syndicated radio show, “Keepin’ It Real”, which broadcasts in 40 markets, five days a week. He resides in New York.

Martin Luther King, III, the second child of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Coretta Scott King, has motivated audiences around the world with his insightful message of hope and civility. He has taken up the torch of his parents and continued the quest for equality and justice for all people. He has traveled extensively around the globe spreading the message of nonviolence and its role in resolving global, international, and cross-cultural conflicts. In addition to public service as an elected commissioner of Fulton County Georgia, Mr. King has served as the president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, also co-founded by his father, and the Martin Luther King, Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social change, founded by his mother after the assassination of his father. He has himself co-founded several organizations including Realizing the Dream, a nonprofit non-governmental organization that fosters nonviolent peace and development strategies.

You may purchase Rise Up from Left Bank Books online or over the phone, but you must provide an email address to be invited to the private online event. If you have purchased the book from Left Bank, you will receive an email event reminder a few days prior to the event. You will receive the actual email invite to join the private online event on the DAY OF the event.

LBB Presents ONLINE: Katie Hill with Stacey Newman - She Will Rise

Wednesday, September 23, 7pm CDT
Left Bank Books' Facebook Live Page

Left Bank Books welcomes former Congresswoman
Katie Hill,
who will discuss her new book, 
She Will Rise: Becoming a Warrior in the Battle for True Equality
on Facebook Live at 7pm CDT on September 23.
Hill will be in conversation with founder and director of ProgressWomen
Hon. Stacey Newman.
Join us on our Facebook Page and order a copy of
from Left Bank Books to support authors and independent bookstores!

 

Former Congresswoman Katie Hill shares her experience with misogyny and double standards in politics to help women topple the longstanding power structures that prevent them from achieving equality.

Powerful women who dare to make mistakes still face swifter and more brutal consequences than men, as the events that precipitated Congressional representative Katie Hill's resignation, in which she was the victim of revenge porn, clearly demonstrate. But Katie Hill does not want women to be discouraged from taking positions of power -- in fact, the rampant misogyny we see is all the more reason for women to lead, to work to change the systems that have kept old, wealthy, white men in power for far too long.

In this book, to be published a week before the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th amendment (which gave women the right to vote), Katie Hill looks back on the progress we've made and outlines her battle plan for our future. She details how we can overcome the obstacles holding women back from achieving equal representation in positions of power to create the change we want for the next century. What challenges do women face in the modern era, and what battles will we need to fight in the years to come? Katie Hill is ready to equip readers for the front lines of leadership in all arenas, to guide women in becoming the warriors we need to shape this country for the better.

"So many of us feel disenchanted with the lack of gender equality in public office and high positions of power. We know that things feel imbalanced, but we don't know what to do about it. Katie has endured many trials and tribulations in her fight for this battle. Using her experience, she provides real answers and a roadmap toward equal representation in She Will Rise. This book serves as an inspiration and a utility tool for anyone who thinks the current system in which we operate needs to shift." —Kristin Bell, actor, activist

"As someone who has personally dealt with double standards in politics, I'm captivated by Katie's story. Even as men who have harassed and assaulted women walk the halls of Congress, Katie faced the ultimate double standard--being publicly shamed and forced to resign. What stands out most about Katie's story isn't the tragedy of what she endured, but the courage and resilience she showed in the aftermath. She Will Rise reflects that spirit and shows how, together, women can fight back and create a better and more equitable future." —Lis Smith, democratic strategist

Katie Hill wasn't yet thirty when she embarked on her run for Congress. By thirty-one, she had become not only a member of Congress but a member of congressional leadership. Soon, she was the subject of an HBO docuseries entitled She's Running, a frequent and ratings-generating cable news guest, and one of the Democratic Party's brightest rising stars. Her campaign attracted the support of dozens of celebrities, including Kristen Bell, Chelsea Handler, Alyssa Milano, and Chris Evans, and she managed to flip a Congressional seat under decades of Republican control. She was the first woman to hold the seat, and the first openly LGBTQ woman to be elected to Congress from California. She resigned from her position less than a year after entering Congress, following a scandal that began a national conversation around questions of bisexuality, domestic abuse, cyber exploitation, workplace power dynamics, and what happens when regular people who live regular lives run for office.

Stacey Newman is founder and director of ProgressWomen, a statewide social justice organization that since 2011 has focused on reproductive rights, gun violence, criminal justice and voting rights. She recently retired as a Missouri State Representative in St. Louis County from 2010 - 2018, serving as chair of the House Progressive Caucus.

LBB Presents ONLINE: francine j. harris & Carl Phillips

Wednesday, September 16, 7pm CDT
Left Bank Books' Facebook Live Page

Left Bank Books welcomes award-winning poets
francine j. harris and Carl Phillips
who will discuss their new books of poetry, 
Here is the Sweet Hand (harris) and Pale Colors in a Tall Field (Phillips)
on Facebook Live at 7pm CDT on September 16.
Join us on our Facebook Live Page and order copies of
from Left Bank Books to support authors and independent bookstores!
 
 
 
The poems in Here is the Sweet Hand explore solitude as a way of seeing. In particular, the speakers in francine j. harris’ third collection explore the mystique, and myth, of female loneliness as it relates to blackness, aging, landscape and artistic tradition.

The speakers in these poems are often protagonists. Against the backdrop of numerous American cities and towns, and in a time of political uncertainty, they are heroines in their quest to find logic through their own sense of the world.

The poems here are interested in the power of observation. But if there is authority in the individual versus the collective, Here is the Sweet Hand also poses questions about the source of that power, or where it may lead.

As in her acclaimed previous collections, harris’ skillful use of imagery and experimentation with the boundaries of language set the stage for unorthodox election commemoration, subway panic, zoomorphism, and linguistic battlefields. From poems in dialogue with the artistry of Toni Morrison and Charles Burnett to poems that wrestle with the moods of Frank Stanford and Ty Dolla $ign, the speakers in this book signal a turn at once inward and opening.
 
------
A powerful, inventive collection from one of America’s most critically acclaimed poets.

Carl Phillips’s new poetry collection, Pale Colors in a Tall Field, is a meditation on the intimacies of thought and body as forms of resistance. The poems are both timeless and timely, asking how we can ever truly know ourselves in the face of our own remembering and inevitable forgetting. Here, the poems metaphorically argue that memory is made up of various colors, with those most prominent moments in a life seeming more vivid, though the paler colors are never truly forgotten. The poems in Pale Colors in a Tall Field approach their points of view kaleidoscopically, enacting the self’s multiplicity and the difficult shifts required as our lives, in turn, shift. This is one of Phillips’s most tender, dynamic, and startling books yet.
 

francine j. harris is the author of play dead, winner of the Lambda Literary and Audre Lorde Awards and a finalist for the Hurston/Wright Legacy Award. Her first collection, allegiance, was a finalist for the Kate Tufts Discovery and PEN Open Book Awards. Originally from Detroit, she has received fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, the MacDowell Colony, and the Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers at the New York Public Library. She is an associate professor of English at the University of Houston.

Carl Phillips is the author of several books of poetry, including Silverchest, a finalist for the International Griffin Prize, and Double Shadow, winner of the Los Angeles Times Book Prize. He is also the author of The Art of Daring: Risk, Restlessness, Imagination. Phillips teaches at Washington University in St. Louis.

LBB Presents ONLINE: Caitlin Moran - More Than A Woman

Tuesday, September 15, 1pm CDT
Left Bank Books' Facebook Page

NOTICE: Due to unforeseen circumstances, Caitlin Moran has had to postpone her event with us indefinitely. We will update our events calendar and put a notice on social media (Facebook and Twitter) if/when she is able to reschedule. As an independent bookstore, we do rely heavily on book sales from events, thus we thank you in advance for purchasing More Than a Woman from Left Bank.

Left Bank Books welcomes bestselling author Caitlin Moran, who will discuss her new book, More Than a Woman, on Facebook Live at 1pm CDT on September 15. Join us on our Facebook Page and order a copy of More Than a Woman from Left Bank Books to support authors and independent bookstores!

The author of the international bestseller How to Be a Woman returns with another “hilarious neo-feminist manifesto” (NPR) in which she reflects on parenting, middle-age, marriage, existential crises—and, of course, feminism.

A decade ago, Caitlin Moran burst onto the scene with her instant bestseller, How to Be a Woman, a hilarious and resonant take on feminism, the patriarchy, and all things womanhood. Moran’s seminal book followed her from her terrible 13th birthday through adolescence, the workplace, strip-clubs, love, and beyond—and is considered the inaugural work of the irreverent confessional feminist memoir genre that continues to occupy a major place in the cultural landscape.

Since that publication, it’s been a glorious ten years for young women: Barack Obama loves Fleabag, and Dior make “FEMINIST” t-shirts. However, middle-aged women still have some nagging, unanswered questions: Can feminists have Botox? Why isn’t there such a thing as “Mum Bod”? Why do hangovers suddenly hurt so much? Is the camel-toe the new erogenous zone? Why do all your clothes suddenly hate you? Has feminism gone too far? Will your To Do List ever end? And WHO’S LOOKING AFTER THE CHILDREN?

As timely as it is hysterically funny, this memoir/manifesto will have readers laughing out loud, blinking back tears, and redefining their views on feminism and the patriarchy. More Than a Woman is a brutally honest, scathingly funny, and absolutely necessary take on the life of the modern woman—and one that only Caitlin Moran can provide.

Caitlin Moran's debut book, How to Be a Woman, was an instant New York Times bestseller. Her first novel, How to Build a Girl, received widespread acclaim and was adapted into a major motion picture starring Beanie Feldstein. People called her follow up novel, How to Be Famous, "hilarious.... wonderfully original." A columnist for the London Times, Caitlin lives in London with her husband and two daughters, and on Twitter @caitlinmoran.

LBB Presents ONLINE: Elsa Hart - Cabinets of Barnaby Mayne

Thursday, August 20, 7pm CST
Left Bank Books' Facebook Page

Left Bank Books welcomes mystery novelist Elsa Hart, who will discuss her new mystery, The Cabinets of Barnaby Mayne, on Facebook Live at 7pm CST on August 20. Hart will be in conversation with Left Bank Books' Shane Mullen. Join us on our Facebook Page and order a copy of The Cabinets of Barnaby Mayne from Left Bank Books to support authors and independent bookstores!

From the author of the acclaimed Li Du novels comes Elsa Hart's new atmospheric mystery series.

London, 1703. In a time when the old approaches to science coexist with the new, one elite community attempts to understand the world by collecting its wonders. Sir Barnaby Mayne, the most formidable of these collectors, has devoted his life to filling his cabinets. While the curious-minded vie for invitations to study the rare stones, bones, books, and artifacts he has amassed, some visitors come with a darker purpose.

For Cecily Kay, it is a passion for plants that brings her to the Mayne house. The only puzzle she expects to encounter is how to locate the specimens she needs within Sir Barnaby’s crowded cabinets. But when her host is stabbed to death, Cecily finds the confession of the supposed killer unconvincing. She pays attention to details—years of practice have taught her that the smallest particulars can distinguish a harmless herb from a deadly one—and in the case of Sir Barnaby’s murder, there are too many inconsistencies for her to ignore.

To discover the truth, Cecily must enter the world of the collectors, a realm where intellect is distorted by obsession and greed. As her pursuit of answers brings her closer to a killer, she risks being given a final resting place amid the bones that wait, silent and still, in the cabinets of Barnaby Mayne.

“Hart is bound to become a household name for readers who love clever and fair whodunits.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Spectacular. An extraordinary time machine of a novel, transporting us three centuries into the past, when Stuart London roiled with color and clamored with the grinding of carriage wheels. Like Hilary Mantel and Kate Mosse, Elsa Hart applies historical detail with a fine-tipped brush, not a mason’s trowel; like Kate Morton and Ken Follett, she devises plots both intricate and exciting. And Cecily Kay, the supremely winning botanist-sleuth braving hidden dangers in The Cabinets of Barnaby Mayne, is a hero for the ages — her and ours. Open this splendid novel and jump back to a vanished world." — A. J. Finn

Elsa Hart is the author of several acclaimed mystery novels set in eighteenth-century China, including City of Ink, one of Publishers Weekly’s Best Books of 2018. She was born in Rome, but her earliest memories are of Moscow, where her family lived until 1991. Since then she has lived in the Czech Republic, the U.S.A., and China. She earned a B.A. from Swarthmore College and a J.D. from Washington University in St. Louis School of Law.

Left Bank Books' Facebook Page

From one of most prominent figures in the field of meditation comes a guidebook for how to use mindfulness to build our inner strength, find balance, and help create a better world.

In today’s fractured world, we’re constantly flooded with breaking news that causes anger, grief, and pain. People are feeling more stressed out than ever, and in the face of this fear and anxiety they can feel so burnt out and overwhelmed that they end up frozen in their tracks and unable to do anything. In Real Change, Sharon Salzberg, a leading expert in lovingkindness meditation, shares sage advice and indispensable techniques to help free ourselves from these negative feelings and actions. She teaches us that meditation is not a replacement for action, but rather a way to practice generosity with ourselves and summon the courage to break through boundaries, reconnect to a movement that’s bigger than ourselves, and have the energy to stay active.

Consulting with veteran activists and social-change agents in a variety of fields, Salzberg collects and shares their wisdom and offers the best practical advice to foster transformation in both ourselves and in society. To help tame our inner landscape or chaos, Salzberg offers mindfulness practices that will help readers cultivate a sense of agency and stay engaged in the long-term struggle for social change.

Whether you’re resolving conflicts with a crotchety neighbor or combating global warming, Real Change will provide the fundamental principles and mindfulness practices to help guide you to the clarity and confidence to lift a foot and take the next step into a better world.

“Inspiring, loving, and empowering. The perfect medicine for these difficult times.” - Jack Kornfield, author of A Path With Heart

"Real Change is a real gift to us all at a crucial time in our human evolution helping us cultivate the clarity to bring deeply needed transformation into our personal and public lives. Sharon Salzberg powerfully guides us with practical steps to cultivate resilience as we bring more active compassion and care into the world. Soak in these words of wisdom and your inner life and the world around you will change for the better!" - Dan Siegel, New York Times bestselling author of BrainstormThe Whole-Brain Child, and No-Drama Discipline

Sharon Salzberg is a central figure in the field of meditation, a world-renowned teacher and New York Times bestselling author. She has played a crucial role in bringing meditation and mindfulness practices to the West and into mainstream culture since 1974, when she first began teaching.

LBB Presents ONLINE: Jabari Asim - Stop and Frisk

Tuesday, August 18, 7pm CDT
Left Bank Books' Facebook Page

Left Bank Books welcomes back author and St. Louis native Jabari Asim, who will discuss his new book of poetry, Stop and Frisk: American Poems, on Facebook Live at 7pm CDT on August 18. Asim will be in conversation with writer and activist Cheeraz Gorman. Join us on our Facebook Page and order a copy of Stop and Frisk from Left Bank Books to support authors and independent bookstores!

"Urgency and imagination, truth and focus: Jabari Asim brings those qualities together in a book of poetry that confronts the lethal face of racism: death-by-police. This book challenges the boundaries of the art by being, in a very good sense of the word, documentary." --Robert Pinsky

In Stop and Frisk, Jabari Asim ruthlessly interrogates entrenched injustice and its insidious echoes. Part rap sheet, part concept album, Asim lays down tracks that add conviction to our collective broken record: What could be more American than pretending truths were self-evident when they seldom were? Drawing defiant inspiration from the news and the Blues, these poems arrest our attention and burn grooves into us. These starkly revelatory poems expose the dark heart of our nation and call for a reckoning-the only way out before everything breaks / into hurt, noise, and ever after.

Jabari Asim is the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship in Creative Arts and the author of seven books for adults--including We Can't Breathe: On Black Lives, White Lies, and the Art of Survival--and ten books for children. His poems are included in several anthologies, including Furious Flower: African American Poetry from the Black Arts Movement to the Present; Beyond the Frontier: African American Poetry for the 21st Century; and Role Call: A Generational Anthology of Social & Political Black Literature & Art. After more than a decade at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and The Washington Post, he now directs the MFA program at Emerson College.

Cheeraz Gormon is a writer, storyteller and public speaker creating poetry, essays, photography, film, and music as well as a community-centered social entrepreneur devoted to the visibility, care and healing of underserved people. Cheeraz is a recipient of the 2018 St. Louis Visionary Award for Outstanding Working Artist.

To Sleep in a Sea of Stars is a brand new epic novel from New York Times bestselling author Christopher Paolini.

Kira Navárez dreamed of life on new worlds.

Now she's awakened a nightmare.

During a routine survey mission on an uncolonized planet, Kira finds an alien relic. At first she's delighted, but elation turns to terror when the ancient dust around her begins to move.

As war erupts among the stars, Kira is launched into a galaxy-spanning odyssey of discovery and transformation. First contact isn't at all what she imagined, and events push her to the very limits of what it means to be human.

While Kira faces her own horrors, Earth and its colonies stand upon the brink of annihilation. Now, Kira might be humanity's greatest and final hope . . .

Christopher Paolini was born in Southern California and has lived most of his life in Paradise Valley, Montana.
