Left Bank Books welcomes award-winning St. Louis author Carol Ferring Shepley, who will sign and discuss the second edition of “St. Louis: An Illustrated Timeline,” at this official Launch Party event!

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of “St. Louis: An Illustrated Timeline” from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.

With vignettes and vintage photographs, “St. Louis: An Illustrated Timeline” takes a wide-angle look at the story of a fur-trading outpost that grew into a major American city. The second edition delves deeper into the mix of politics, personality and culture that make up the Gateway City. Building on the award-winning first edition, new research reveals how the entire city came together for the best World’s Fair of all time, as well as why forces of racism aligned in Ferguson.
