Categories: Literature & Poetry


Left Bank Books presents a discussion on gun violence with Alex Kotlowitz, author of “An American Summer: Love and Death in Chicago,” and Jonathan Metzl, author of “Dying of Whiteness: How the Politics of Racial Resentment Is Killing America’s Heartland”!

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of either “An American Summer” or “Dying of Whiteness” from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.

From Alex Kotlowitz, the bestselling author of “There Are No Children Here,” “An American Summer” is a richly textured, heartrending portrait of love and death in Chicago’s most turbulent neighborhoods.

In “Dying of Whiteness,” physician Jonathan Metzl reveals how right-wing backlash policies have mortal consequences — even for the white voters they promise to help.
