Artists explore traveling to a situation in the future, or recreate a lost moment from their past that they missed that moment to photograph or paint; yet years later the image is still burned in their mind. This is that chance to relive that fleeting moment of that stranger's smile in a crowd...a sunny day at the beer garden....

Gallery hours Tue - Fri 9-4,  Sat 11-2

RECEPTION: Live music May 21, 5-7 pm. Bring your mask.

Left Bank Books, Joseph Beth Booksellers, & Seminary Co-op Bookstore | 57th Street Books presents an afternoon with John Green, who will discuss his new book The Anthropocene Reviewed: Essays on a Human-Centered Planet, on May 22 at 1pm CT/ 2pm ET in a private online event. Green will be in conversation with Midwest author and host Ashley C. Ford. This is an exclusive event that requires a ticket purchase that includes a SIGNED copy of The Anthropocene Reviewed and a $1 donation to Partners in Health: Maternal Center of Excellence from Left Bank Books for admission.

The Anthropocene Reviewed is a deeply moving and insightful collection of personal essays from #1 bestselling author John Green.

The Anthropocene is the current geologic age, in which humans have profoundly reshaped the planet and its biodiversity. In this remarkable symphony of essays adapted and expanded from his groundbreaking podcast, bestselling author John Green reviews different facets of the human-centered planet on a five-star scale--from the QWERTY keyboard and sunsets to Canada geese and Penguins of Madagascar.

Funny, complex, and rich with detail, the reviews chart the contradictions of contemporary humanity. As a species, we are both far too powerful and not nearly powerful enough, a paradox that came into sharp focus as we faced a global pandemic that both separated us and bound us together.

John Green's gift for storytelling shines throughout this masterful collection. The Anthropocene Reviewed is a open-hearted exploration of the paths we forge and an unironic celebration of falling in love with the world.

John Green is the award-winning, #1 bestselling author of books including Looking for Alaska, The Fault in Our Stars, and Turtles All the Way Down. His books have received many accolades, including a Printz Medal, a Printz Honor, and an Edgar Award. John has twice been a finalist for the LA Times Book Prize and was selected by TIME magazine as one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World. He is also the writer and host of the critically acclaimed podcast The Anthropocene Reviewed. With his brother, Hank, John has co-created many online video projects, including Vlogbrothers and the educational channel Crash Course. He lives with his family in Indianapolis, Indiana. You can visit John online at johngreenbooks.com.

Ashley C. Ford is a writer, host, and educator who lives in Indianapolis, Indiana with her husband, poet and fiction writer Kelly Stacy, and their chocolate lab Astro Renegade Ford-Stacy. Ford is the former host of The Chronicles of Now podcast, co-host of The HBO companion podcast Lovecraft Country Radio, seasons one & three of MasterCard's Fortune Favors The Bold, as well as the video interview series PROFILE by BuzzFeed News, and Brooklyn-based news & culture TV show, 112BK.

She was also the host of the first season of Audible's literary interview series, Authorized. She has been named among Forbes Magazine's 30 Under 30 in Media (2017), Brooklyn Magazine's Brooklyn 100 (2016), Time Out New York's New Yorkers of The Year (2017), and Variety's New Power of New York (2019).
