08.18.2020 | LBB Presents ONLINE: Jabari Asim – Stop and Frisk | Free

August 18 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Categories: Literature & Poetry, Misc, Storytelling


Left Bank Books welcomes back author and St. Louis native Jabari Asim, who will discuss his new book of poetry, “Stop and Frisk: American Poems,” on Facebook Live at 7pm CDT on August 18. Join us on our Facebook Page and order a copy of “Stop and Frisk” from Left Bank Books. In “Stop and Frisk,” Jabari Asim ruthlessly interrogates entrenched injustice and its insidious echoes. Part rap sheet, part concept album, Asim lays down tracks that add conviction to our collective broken record: “What could be more American than pretending truths were self-evident when they seldom were? ” Drawing defiant inspiration from the news and the Blues, these poems arrest our attention and burn grooves into us. All you need to do to participate is log in to your personal Facebook account, go to Left Bank Books’ Facebook Page, “Like” the page, and wait for the livestream to begin on the page.
