Admit it, you haven’t finished your Christmas shopping yet, have you? Are there any book lovers on your list? I might have a few ideas for you, then. But one idea I definitely have is that you should come to Left Bank Books in the Central West End on Saturday, December 17, from noon to 2 p.m. and buy your book from yours truly. Yep, I’m taking off my writer hat and putting on my bookseller hat, recommending some of my favorite books of the year and also raising money for a good cause.
It’s all part of Author to Bookseller, an event put on by the local outfits that make up the St. Louis Independent Bookstore Alliance where local authors will be hand-selling their favorite books at their favorite local bookstore. While I’m doing my shift at LBB, a percentage of sales will go to Growing American Youth, a great organization for LGBTQ youth in the St. Louis area.
So what’s not to love? I’ll tell you what’s not to love, though: forgetting someone on your Christmas list. You don’t want to be that person, do you? Of course you don’t. So come trade your money for some really good books.
