Summer Reading Rainbow

Rainbow Rowell

Spend the Summer of 2014 Reading Rainbow Rowell with Left Bank Books!

This is a Left Bank Books hosted reading group focused entirely on our new favorite author and generally fantastic human: Rainbow Rowell.

You'll get to meet your friendly neighborhood booksellers, read a whole set of truly wonderful books and have all kinds of new stories for your friends and family. Also you'll be the coolest kid at the water cooler (promise).

The group meets downstairs in the store. Please RSVP to Jonesey at jonesey@left-bank.com or call 314-367-6731 if you're interested.
