Congresswoman Cori Bush is the first Black woman and first nurse to represent Missouri; the first woman to represent Missouri’s First Congressional District; and the first activist from the movement fighting for Black lives elected to Congress.

Cori Bush’s memoir, The Forerunner, is an inspiring personal account of her journey from nurse, pastor, and community organizer to the halls of Congress. She shares her story as a minimum wage worker, a survivor of domestic and sexual violence, and an unhoused parent. She hadn’t intended to run for political office, but her experiences on the front lines of the Ferguson Uprising changed her course.

Left Bank Books is St. Louis’s oldest and largest independent bookstore now in its 53rd year. We strive for literacy and justice for all, curating an intelligent, relevant, and culturally diverse selection of books, cards, and gifts selected to spark meaningful public conversation.

This event is made possible in part through the support of our nonprofit arm, The Left Bank Books Foundation, and with the support of you, the community, through your purchase of our guest authors’ books.
