Left Bank Books
Left Bank Books presents local authors, and music aficionados, Amanda E. Doyle and Steve Pick, who will sign and discuss their book St. Louis Sound.
Steve Pick was born in St. Louis, Missouri. His life-long interest in music became an obsession when he co-founded Jet Lag magazine in 1980, then spent 13 years reviewing concerts and writing a music column for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. He began working in record stores in 1983, and played guitar in a handful of bands in the 1980s. From 1988 through 1993, and again from 2001 to the present, he has hosted a weekly radio show on KDHX-FM. In his lifetime, he has seen more than half the musicians in this book play live.
Amanda E. Doyle is a St. Louis transplant (via Memphis, Florida, and Mizzou) and ardent city resident. She got kicked out of her first concert (Delbert McClinton, at a dive bar in Memphis, where her dad smuggled her in on his shoulders) at age 6, which began a lifetime of great shows and diverse musical interests. She's written for visitor publications in several cities, and has authored 5 previous books, including 100 Things to Do in St. Louis Before You Die, Missouri Almanac 2018-2019, and Standing Up for Civil Rights in St. Louis. She lives with her husband and two children in south St. Louis.
