St. Louis County Library, HEC Media, SLCL Authors @ the J, the Favorite Author Series, and Left Bank Books present Bestselling Novelist B. A. Shapiro, author of “Metropolis.”


Author of the bestseller “The Art Forger,” B. A. Shapiro presents a masterful novel of psychological suspense. The novel follows a cast of unforgettable characters whose lives intersect after a harrowing accident at the Metropolis Storage Warehouse. But was it really an accident? Was it suicide? A murder? Six mysterious characters, who rent units in, or are connected to, the self-storage facility, must now reevaluate their lives. The characters have a variety of backgrounds: they are different races; they practice different religions; they are rich, poor, and somewhere in the middle. As they dip in and out of one another’s lives, Shapiro both dismantles the myth of the American dream and builds tension to an exciting climax.


Doors open at 6:00pm.
Seating is limited; early arrival is recommended.
Books available for purchase from Left Bank Books. Curbside pick-up, in-store pick-up, and shipping available.
