Descripción: Founded in 1969, Left Bank Books is the only independently-owned, full-service bookstore in the greater metropolitan area of St. Louis.

Located in the historic Central West End neighborhood, Left Bank Books is situated among magnificent turn-of-the-century residences and some of the best restaurants and finest art galleries in the area.

Left Bank Books has a cultural and progressive political focus. Specialties include: modern literature and poetry, the contemporary art and performing arts scene, political analysis, African-American, feminist, gay and lesbian literature; psychology and high quality, multicultural children's books. Our regular customers come from the immediate neighborhood, the greater metro area, which has a population exceeding 2.5 million people, and the two-state area of Missouri and Illinois. We offer every book in print and a vast used selection online and ship everywhere in the world.

Other features of the store include an extensive used book department and an art gallery featuring nine to twelve shows annually by local artists. We have a variety of discounts for educators and institutions. We offer a 20% discount on books selected by our registered book groups.
