Earthbound Brewing, 2724 Cherokee St.
Join Belt Publishing and Left Bank Books in celebrating the release of The St. Louis Anthology!
Have a beer, mingle with the book's contributors, and enjoy an evening of readings and performances that celebrate St. Louis, hosted by editor Ryan Schuessler. With nearly 70 stories, essays, and poems written by more than 50 contributors, The St. Louis Anthology chronicles the city's history, culture, and community. Attendees are encouraged to arrive early and grab a drink before the show begins!
St. Louis is undoubtedly fragmented, physically so in that the city is dissected by rivers, highways, walls, and fences; but also in a more insidious way. The St. Louis Anthology dares to confront the city's nostalgia and its trauma, celebrating those who have faced both, living complex and nuanced lives in this city against a backdrop of its red brick, muddy rivers, and sticky summer nights.
Books will be on sale at the event, or click here to pre-order your copy!
