Strange Stars Booksigning

Mon., July 23, 7-9 p.m.

info@bookhousestl.com
, ,

Join us on Monday, July 23rd as author Jason Heller signs "Strange Stars: David Bowie, Pop Music, and the Decade Sci-Fi Exploded " In "Strange Stars", Jason Heller recasts sci-fi and pop music as parallel cultural forces that depended on one another to expand the horizons of books, music, and out-of-this-world imagery. From Sun Ra lecturing on the black man in the cosmos, to Pink Floyd jamming live over the broadcast of the Apollo 11 moon landing; the whole scene was led by David Bowie, who hid in the balcony of a movie theater to watch 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Left Bank Books welcomes Missouri children's author Peggy Archer for a Celebrity Storytime reading of her new picture book, "A Hippy-Hoppy Toad"! It’s hard to be a tiny toad minding your own business on a twig. First a bird pecks at him…. Then a bee buzzes…. Then a dog barks…and so on. And each time the toad is surprised by a buzz or a woof (or the toe of a sneaker!), he hops to a new location farther down the road. With fun sounds, clever rhymes, and an irresistible rhythm, this is the perfect story for sharing. Free

The Gateway Arch is one of America's most distinctive and beloved national monuments. Much has been written about the Arch, but no book has captured the legend, lore, and spirit behind its conception and construction, until now. In The Making of an Icon: The Dreamers, the Schemers, and the Hard Hats Who Built the Gateway Arch, Jim Merkel compiles well-known, and rare, stories about the visionaries, finaglers, protesters, and fearless-but-skilled hands involved in an incredible undertaking that courted as much controversy as it did enthusiasm. free
