Left Bank Books welcomes the bestselling and highly-acclaimed young adult author of "The Drowned Cities" and "Ship Breaker" Paolo Bacigalupi, who will sign and discuss his new novel, "Tool of War"!
This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of "Tool of War" from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.
Tool, a half-man/half-beast designed for combat, is capable of so much more than his creators had ever dreamed. He has gone rogue from his pack of bioengineered "augments" and emerged a victorious leader of a pack of human soldier boys. But he is hunted relentlessly by someone determined to destroy him, who knows an alarming secret: Tool has found the way to resist his genetically ingrained impulses of submission and loyalty toward his masters. The time is coming when Tool will embark on an all-out war against those who have enslaved him. From one of science fiction's undisputed masters comes a riveting page-turner that pulls no punches.
“Musician and songwriter Annie Clark – aka St. Vincent – is one of the most distinctive artistic voices and arrestingly original guitarists of her generation. Her recent album, the self-titled St. Vincent , won her “album of the year” designations from the NME, the Guardian, and Entertainment Weekly. In 2014, St. Vincent performed on the season finale of Saturday Night Live and, in 2015, she won the Grammy for Best Alternative Album. She has been the recipient of the Smithsonian American Ingenuity Award and the Q Maverick award, both given for outstanding innovation in the arts.
An incredible live performer, Clark has been heralded as “the first truly 21st century guitar hero” by Guitar World magazine, and is constantly pushing the boundaries of today’s musical landscape. St. Vincent’s incomparable signature electric guitar for for Ernie Ball Music Man has been critically acclaimed by everyone from Guitar World to Vogue.
This past Sundance Film Festival, Annie expanded her creativity and vision with a filmmaking debut. She premiered her “BIRTHDAY PARTY” as part of the XX anthology. She co-wrote, scored, and directed the piece, which stars Melanie Lynskey, Joe Swanberg and Sheila Vand. Hollywood Reporter called it “most original […] with its own mad energy, quirky gallows humor and idiosyncratic visual signature,” while Variety said it left audiences “interested to see what Clark could deliver at feature length.”
After a successful tour of 25 shows across the US this year, Wax Tailor is back for a new US Tour in November. For those additional 20 shows, mixing music & visuals, he will be joined on stage by Charlotte Savary (singer), Mattic (MC) & he’s also bringing Dirty Art Club as the opening act. The french producer is releasing « By Any Remixes Necessary », a relecture of his last album where he invites a dozen of producers. This album will be a world premiere as it will be released in a new format called “Vinyl connected ».A defining figure of the european electronic scene, Wax Tailor’s unique sound lays somewhere between cinematic electro and orchestral hip-hop. Digging through the crates of the forgotten melodies, the DJ / producer crafts musical fantasies where silver era Hollywood and 20th century music come together. He has gained recognition through the years with five studio albums, two double live albums and about seven hundred concerts in over fifty countries. With his last studio album, “By Any Beats Necessary” (featuring Tricky, Ghostface Killah, Lee Fields, R.A The Rugged Man, Token…), Wax Tailor initiates a new take on the western frontier, leading us on a fabled road where Blues, Psychedelic Rock, Soul, Funk and Hip-Hop collide. Wax Tailor has collaborated with numerous artists (Ghostface Killah, Tricky, Sharon Jones, Lee Fields, Ursula Rucker, Keziah Jones, Aloe Blacc, Charlie Winston, Alice Russell, Archive, RJD2, DJ Format, DJ Vadim, General Elektriks, Daedelus…)

Left Bank Books welcomes science writer Juli Berwald, who will sign and discuss her new book, "Spineless: The Science of Jellyfish and the Art of Growing a Backbone"!This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of "Spineless" from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line. Juli Berwald’s journey into the world of jellyfish is a personal one. Over a decade ago she left the sea and her scientific career behind to raise a family in landlocked Austin, Texas. Increasingly dire headlines drew her back to jellies, as unprecedented jellyfish blooms toppled ecosystems and collapsed the world’s most productive fisheries. Berwald’s desire to understand jellyfish takes her on a scientific odyssey. Gracefully blending personal memoir with crystal-clear distillations of science, "Spineless" reveals that jellyfish are a bellwether for the damage we’re inflicting on the climate and the oceans and a call to realize our collective responsibility for the planet we share.
Left Bank Books and St. Louis on the Air welcome retired US Army Captain Flo Groberg, who will sign and discuss his new book, "8 Seconds of Courage: A Soldier’s Story from Immigrant to the Medal of Honor," with Don Marsh!This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of "8 Seconds of Courage" from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line. On November 12, 2015, Captain Florent “Flo” Groberg was given the nation’s highest military award, the Congressional Medal of Honor—the first immigrant to be so recognized since the Vietnam War. "8 Seconds of Courage" tells Flo's story from his childhood in France to his decision to enlist and the grueling training he underwent at US Army Ranger School. Through trial and error, he learned to be a field commander and on the front lines in Afghanistan formed close and lasting bonds with his fellow soldiers. It was this powerful sense of responsibility that compelled him to take his brave action to save lives, even at the risk of his own, and dedicate his time to veterans outreach today.

Since his birth in Chicago, IL, Benjamin Laub (aka Grieves) enjoyed a diverse musical upbringing, exposed at an early age to the city’s local jazz and blues clubs by his father. After relocating to Fort Collins, CO and eventually Seattle at age 19, Grieves had broadened his array of musical influences to include punk rock and eventually became completely immersed in Hip Hop as an art form. Following his debut album Irreversible in 2007, Grieves began collaborating with local Seattle-based producer Budo, a talented multi-instrumentalist that helped complete the organic-yet-intense sound of 15 melodic, sample-free tracks that became 88 Keys & Counting. Following rave reviews of the album’s mainly digital release, Grieves and Budo hit the road once again to set up shop in New York City, where they are currently at work on the follow-up to 88 Keys, due for a Fall release this year on Rhymesayers. Untethered to common restraints of the hip-hop genre, the combination of Grieves’ singing and rapping with the refreshing horn, guitar, and keyboard driven production by Budo presents Grieves strongest work to date.
