Categories: Literature & Poetry


Left Bank Books welcomes author and Ferguson Wellspring Church pastor F. Willis Johnson, who will sign and discuss his new book, “Holding Up Your Corner: Talking About Race in Your Community”!

“Holding Up Your Corner” equips pastors and community leaders to respond with confidence when crises occur, lower their inhibitions about addressing topics, and reclaim their authority as prophetic witnesses and leaders in order to transform their communities. This book prompts readers to observe, identify and name the complex causes of violence in the community, including racial prejudice, entrenched poverty and exploitation, segregation, the loss of education and employment, and the ravages of addiction.

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of “Holding Up Your Corner” from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.
