Virvus Jones signs and discusses “Stalking Horse”

Left Bank Books welcomes author and former St. Louis City Comptroller Virus Jones, who will sign and discuss his debut novel, “Stalking Horse”!

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

It was the summer of 1954 amidst Brown vs. Board of Education in the segregated, southern town of Petersville. Follow the lives of Teddy “T.C.” Chambers, Ronald Jackson, Wiley Fentress, Leonard Marcus, George “Snake” Martin, Demitrius “Meat” Walker and Billy Strayhorn as their world evolves out of the conditions they are facing. Freedom rides, sit-ins, arrests, deployment to Vietnam and law school are just a few of the events that unfold, forever impacting their lives. Power, deception and crime threaten to destroy the influence of each man as this political tale uncovers the realities that contributed to modern Black politics in the United States.
