Left Bank Books Presents: Ron Austin – Avery Colt is a Snake a Thief and a Liar

Left Bank Books presents local author, 2016 Reginal Arts Commision fellow, and the 2017 Nilsen Prize-winner Ron A. Austin, who will sign and discuss his new semi-autobiographical story collection, Avery Colt is a Snake a Thief and a Liar.

Austin’s semi-autobiographical, linked story collection follows the misadventures of Avery Colt as he struggles to survive in North St. Louis alongside his family. Learning the best way to slaughter a goat, rebuilding his family’s corner market, and reckoning the weight of a revolver are a few of the challenges Avery faces. As he matures through each page, Avery takes control of his circumstances and attempts dangerous feats of alchemy. Charged with urgency and emotion, Austin’s prose faithfully renders a community determined to overcome crisis with strength, dark humor, and plenty of heart.

Parking: Lots one block north and one block east; street parking (meters free after 7pm).
