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 email@example.com or call 314-367-6731 if you're interested.

May 21st selection.Great first meeting! Thanks to all the fans for showing up and getting loud in the bookstore! For some extra credit, check out Eleanor & Park's playlists. Sometimes the Internet does a thing correctly, no?
June 18th selection.Thanks so much to everyone who came out to talk about Fangirl. It was a wonderful conversation filled with laughter and joy and a lot of love for Cath and Wren and Rainbow! Someone found this: magicath.tumblr.com It is magical. So very magical.
July 2014 selection.Just look at these smiling faces! We just loved Beth and Jennifer and also the news that Rainbow (wait for it) has written (wait for it) Harry Potter fanfiction!!!
