Stephanie Ellis Schlaifer, The Cloud LassoLeft Bank Books welcomes local poet and author Stephanie Schlaifer, who will sign and discuss her debut children's book, The Cloud Lasso.

Delilah learns to lasso all the clouds out of the sky as she navigates her feelings of sadness and isolation after her grandfather dies. Big gloomy clouds have hung over Delilah’s head and heart since her beloved grandfather died. But remembering an old trick he taught her on the farm, she lassos all the clouds out of the sky as she navigates her feelings of sadness and isolation. The Cloud Lasso is a poetic meditation on loss, memory, and paying homage to those we’ve lost.

Stephanie Ellis Schlaifer is a poet and installation artist in St. Louis. She is the author of Cleavemark (BOAAT Press, 2016), and has an MFA in poetry from the Iowa Writers' Workshop. She frequently collaborates with other artists, most recently with Cheryl Wassenaar on the installation "The Cabinet of Ordinary Affairs" at the Des Lee Gallery. The Cloud Lasso is her first children's book. She lives in St. Louis
