Sherry Jones signs and discusses “Josephine Baker’s Last Dance”

Left Bank Books welcomes international bestselling author Sherry Jones, who will sign and discuss her new novel, “Josephine Baker’s Last Dance”!

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of “Josephine Baker’s Last Dance” from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.

Discover the fascinating and singular life story of St. Louis native Josephine Baker—actress, singer, dancer, Civil Rights activist, member of the French Resistance during WWII, and a woman dedicated to erasing prejudice and creating a more equitable world. In this illuminating biographical novel, Sherry Jones brings to life Josephine’s early years in servitude and poverty in America, her rise to fame as a showgirl in her famous banana skirt, her activism against discrimination, and her many loves and losses. From 1920s Paris to 1960s Washington, to her final, triumphant performance, one of the most extraordinary lives of the twentieth century comes to stunning life on the page.
