Located in the Central West End area, Left Bank Books is a locally-owned, independent book store since 1969. There is also a downtown St. Louis location. LBB specializes in several books, some hard-to-find, as well as a large selection of publications. Authors, national and local, often make appearances and lecture, then sign autographs or pose for photos. It also partners with several area nonprofits to encourage children to read.
Cake placement date: February 21
Where is the cake now?: The cake still sits outside the store. (May 2017)
