Left Bank Books opened in 1969 by a group of graduate students at Washington University who wanted to create a place where one could find all kinds of literature. They are the oldest and largest independently-owned full-line bookstore in St. Louis, and they offer a full-line of new and used books, gifts, cards, magazines, toys and services. They’ve grown and changed throughout their 50 years, but their mission still remains the same – to spark public conversation by curating an intelligent, relevant, culturally diverse selection of books.
