Left Bank Books
Left Bank Books presents author and St. Louis native Anne Valente, who will sign and discuss her new novel, Our Hearts Will Burn Us Down.

As members of the yearbook committee, Nick, Zola, Matt, and Christina are eager to capture all the memorable moments of their junior year at Lewis and Clark High School in St. Louis. But how do you document a horrific tragedy—a deadly school shooting by a classmate? A story of grief, community, and family, of the search for understanding and normalcy in the wake of devastating loss, Our Hearts Will Burn Us Down explores profound questions about resiliency, memory, and recovery that brilliantly illuminate the deepest recesses of the human heart.
“Valente’s beautiful, elegiac novel about a community in mourning, and the unseen forces that unravel and consume us after a tragedy, is a work of heartbreaking timeliness.” — J. Ryan Stradal, Kitchens of the Great Midwest
