A Human Being Died That Night
By Nicolas Wright, from the bestselling book by Pumla Gobodo-Madikizela
During the 1990s, psychologist Pumla Gobodo-Madikizela interviewed Eugene de Kock, commanding officer of the South African government’s death squad stationed at Vlakplaas–a man who had ordered and carried out the torture and murder of dozens of anti-apartheid activists, earning the nickname “Prime Evil.” De Kock was serving a 212-year prison sentence for crimes against humanity.
She conducted these interviews as part of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission that held tribunals in which victims and survivors confronted policemen, government officials, and others who injured and killed blacks under apartheid. Victims and survivors had the opportunity to speak of their pain, question de Kock and others, and—if they chose—to offer forgiveness, something that could be given only once the “apartheid of the mind” had been broken and the existence of something to forgive had been admitted.
But how does one even begin to forgive crimes of that magnitude, especially when our very idea of justice is tied to concepts of revenge and righteous anger? Does forgiving the criminal dishonor the loved ones who died at his hands? And how can any nation–including our own–overcome the injustices of the past?
Nicholas Wright takes us inside the prison where these interviews were conducted for a moving study of remorse, a timely call for truth and accountability, and a remarkable exploration of the power of forgiveness.
a new play by Michael Erickson
A student in a college creative writing class writes a story about a student, much like himself, who brings a gun to class and begins shooting his classmates and instructor, much like the actual people in the class. Fearful that the story is a blueprint for a real shooting, the instructor alerts university officials and tries to have the student removed from her class. But the student fights back. He argues she is trying to censor his freedom of speech, and that she is biased against his gender and race. The instructor is soon on the defensive. Her career and her reputation are on the line. Has she overreacted? Or is there something deeper, more dangerous lurking here?

The latest permutation in suburban living is New Town in St. Charles County. With a trip along the first freeway in America, there’s time to discuss the history of the suburbs, the issues of racial desegregation that provoked “white flight,” and the peculiar effects suburban living have had on those who have lived in them. The bus tour begins and ends at CAM.

Left Bank Books and the St. Louis County Library present bestselling author Steve Hamiton, who will sign and discuss his new novel, "Exit Strategy: A Nick Mason Novel"!
Nick Mason has been given a true mission impossible: Infiltrate WITSEC, the top secret federal witness protection program that has never been compromised, locate the three men who put his boss Darius Cole behind bars for life, and kill them. But first he has to find them, and the clock is ticking. It’s a brutal test of Mason’s will to survive, and this time there are no limits to how far Mason will go to fulfill the contract he’s been given—because the consequences of failure are not only his life, but the lives of his ex-wife and daughter, the two people he’ll do anything to protect.
This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of "Exit Strategy" from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.

Left Bank Books welcomes renowned journalist and historian Garrett Graff, who will sign and discuss his new book, "Raven Rock: The Story of the U.S. Government’s Secret Plan to Save Itself—While the Rest of Us Die"!
This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of "Raven Rock" from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.
Since the beginning of the Cold War, the U.S. government has been secretly planning for what would come after a nuclear attack on America. From hidden bunkers where generals and politicians would be evacuated to secret lists of “dangerous enemies” who would be arrested in the opening moments of war, "Raven Rock" provides the eye-opening truth about the multibillion-dollar Continuity of Government program. From the dawn of the nuclear era through the War on Terror, the COG determines the activities and processes that would allow the government to continue its essential operations following a nuclear attack—and even what totems of American culture should be saved.
