Jasmine Turner is an energetic soul singer/songwriter from St. Louis, MO. Producing raw sounds, rich in emotion, she is a true vessel of creativity. Her passion stretches far beyond knowing the healing capabilities of music. She uses this knowledge intentionally to edify the people listening. She was raised by an eclectic mix of influences, but especially Michael Jackson, Earth, Wind, and Fire, and any “Oldie but Goodie” artist. No less influential was Whoopi Goldberg, Sammy Davis Jr., Missy Elliot, and Maya Angelou. These pioneers, along with so many others, inspired her to push towards originality in her art of choice.

Jasmine released her first studio recording, This Love, on January 1, 2017. Though intended to be a simple resolution, the smooth Maroon 5 cover was the catalyst for her commitment to herself and her artistry. She'd spent six years prior to the release performing primarily background vocals for various local acts. "I had a lot of time to think. Too much thinking can easily lead to not enough doing. So, while using the cover gigs to hone in on my craft, I continued to write until I finally got my ass in the studio!"

Though there's much room for the interpretation and re-creation of the music she loves, there's even more space for her original works. Her debut EP, Jukebox, is a 4-track collection of her most eclectic pieces (aimed to be released mid-spring). She uses cryptic, yet bold and in your face lyrics, combined with ethereal harmonies. Seeing her live reveals her power to take you through her world of truth, leaving you with strong feelings and inspiration. Feel-good vibes flow through her dope arrangements fused with jazz like chords, and percussive rhythms. Complex, yet introspective experiences, by way of her music, give fans a genuine listen. Soulful, free, beautiful, and authentic - Jasmine Turner.

Left Bank Books and Maryville Talks Books welcome St. Louis journalist Sarah Kendzior, who will sign and discuss her new book, "The View from Flyover Country: Dispatches from the Forgotten America"!

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of "The View from Flyover Country" from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.

St. Louis–based writer and expert in authoritarian states, Sarah Kendzior, has been called “a political heavyweight” and “a Cassandra in Trumpland,” and is often credited with first predicting Donald Trump’s presidential victory. A clear-eyed account of the realities of life in America’s overlooked heartland, "The View from Flyover Country" is a piercing critique of the labor exploitation, racism, gentrification, media bias, and other aspects of the post-employment economy that gave rise to a president who rules like an autocrat. "The View from Flyover Country" is necessary reading for anyone who believes that the only way for America to fix its problems is to first discuss them with honesty and compassion.

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of "The Sky is Yours" from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line. 

 

In the burned-out, futuristic city of Empire Island, three young people navigate a crumbling metropolis constantly under threat from a pair of dragons that circle the skies. When violence strikes, reality star Duncan Humphrey Ripple V, the spoiled scion of the metropolis’ last dynasty; Baroness Swan Lenore Dahlberg, his tempestuous, death-obsessed betrothed; and Abby, a feral beauty he discovered tossed out with the trash; are forced to flee everything they’ve ever known. As they wander toward the scalded heart of the city, they face fire, conspiracy, mayhem, unholy drugs, dragon-worshippers, and the monsters lurking inside themselves. "The Sky Is Yours" is incredibly cinematic, bawdy, rollicking, hilarious, and utterly unforgettable.

When Lindi Ortega went in search of some quiet last year, the award-winning artist was pleasantly surprised to find a voice she hadn’t heard in some time – her own. Amid sparse, atmospheric production, it’s precisely this voice – a combination of Ortega’s fatalistic perspective expressed with her evocative soprano – that grips your attention on a brand new EP, Til The Goin’ Gets Gone. A dogged resilience permeates this unadorned collection – three originals and a cover of Townes Van Zandt’s “Waiting ‘Round To Die.” The songs are the hard-won spoils of an internal war with words that struck after an extended stretch of touring, addressed in the EP’s title track about the detours and ditches that a traveling musician faces. “What A Girl’s Gotta Do,” a song that is the silver lining of an otherwise dreadful date, explores the gritty pragmatism of making ends meet. Alongside the title track, this song offers a second metaphor about artistic life that strengthens the EP’s overall sense of resolve. Ortega’s somber rendition of “Waiting ‘Round to Die,” acknowledges a personal debt – her recent discovery of the legendary songwriter’s music is what finally cured her writer’s block. The closer, “Final Bow,” came when Ortega assumed she only had one song left in her. “I thought I had to quit music but I wanted to leave gracefully,” she says. “But then I decided to get up and sing some more.” As a whole, this statement captures the essence of Ortega’s new EP – it’s about dusting off, gutting it out, stepping up for another round.

Left Bank Books welcomes award-winning author Jewell Parker Rhodes, who will sign and discuss her new middle grade novel, "Ghost Boys"!

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of "Ghost Boys" from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.

Twelve-year-old Jerome is shot by a police officer who mistakes his toy gun for a real threat. As a ghost, he observes the devastation that's been unleashed on his family and community in the wake of what they see as an unjust and brutal killing. Soon Jerome meets another ghost: Emmett Till, a boy from a very different time but similar circumstances. Emmett helps Jerome process what has happened, on a journey towards recognizing how historical racism may have led to the events that ended his life. Jerome also meets Sarah, the daughter of the police officer, who grapples with her father's actions. Once again Jewell Parker Rhodes deftly weaves historical and socio-political layers into a gripping and poignant story about how children and families face the complexities of today's world.
