The Raw Earth "casbah-ssippi" carpet ride will bring our caravan of world music to the winter oasis in Soulard.  Beats for the feets in the heated patio will bring visions of exotic places and spaces as our sounds put you on the Cairo to Clarksdale express with numerous stops at the Afro-Celtic watering hole for "more beer".  Take a few moments to hear what the Raw Earth experience can do to warm your spirit and soul.

Left Bank Books welcomes bestselling author of "Bottled" and Momsieblog.com Dana Bowman, who will sign and discuss her new book, "How to Be Perfect Like Me"!

 

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of "How to Be Perfect Like Me" from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.

 

Recover. Rinse. Repeat. Dana Bowman can’t escape the lure of perfectionism, trying to be a flawless wife, mother, and person in recovery. When Dana experiences a short-lived relapse during the Christmas holiday, she has the startling realization that recovery is more than just giving up alcohol. In this funny and revealing follow-up to her best-selling book "Bottled," Dana reflects on how we live in a society of excess, always pushing ourselves to do and be better. However, it doesn’t take her long to realize that self-care and getting over herself is the key to happiness.

Three years in the making, "Micro-Novels" follows Tory on a bi-polar rampage across America. Encouraged by his Facebook friends and inspired by the Beats, Tory drives from coast to coast contemplating life, smoking weed and posting updates along the way. Mood swings, narcissism, social anxiety and bondage, Tory compresses his thoughts into dense, formless clusters, psychedelic fortune cookies with no expiration date: Micro-Novels. Written in rest-stops, parking lots, all night diners and swingers clubs, "Micro-Novels" is "On the Road" meets "Up in Smoke" with a side of social networking. 

Tory Seller is an author, musician, filmmaker, screenwriter, comedian and performance artist.  As a comedian, he has performed at the biggest clubs in the world, including the Hollywood Improv and The Comedy Store.
