Left Bank Books welcomes St. Louis native and debut author Molly Patterson, who will sign and discuss her new novel, “Rebellion”!
This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of “Rebellion” from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.
A luminous cross-generational story that recalls the works of Jane Smiley and Isabel Allende, this sweeping debut novel tells the stories of four women who dare to challenge the boundaries of their circumscribed lives. From rural Illinois to the far reaches of China, these four women are interconnected by actions, consequence, and spirit, each brilliantly displaying the fleeting intensity of youth, the obligation of family, and the dramatic consequence of charting their own destiny. A vibrant story of compassion and discovery set against a century of complicated relations, “Rebellion” celebrates those who fight against expectation in pursuit of their own thrilling fate, and introduces a rising literary star.
