Please join us for A SECOND LOOK,  photography exhibition for our very own Gena Brady and our very regular customer John C. Seuc-Rocher, up through May 1


RookJohn C. Seuc-Rocher aka "Rook" is a self-taught photographer and musician who has developed his own unique style over the past several years. Challenging us to give the ordinary a second look, he finds the extraordinary in the mundane.  Born in Madrid, Spain to a family with an international background, he has called St. Louis home for the majority of his life.  His fascination and love for both the people of St. Louis and their history continues to influence the many aspects of his life and art. 


Gena Brady is an artist who photographs urban, suburban, and rural landscapes.  Especially drawn to the things people create, collect, and leave behind, she is dedicated to the medium of photography.  She earned a B.S. in Environmental Design from the University of Missouri - Columbia. Exhibiting her work at various galleries and group shows, she has also been a volunteer photographer for the International Institute of St. Louis, a CAT graduate through the Regional Art Commission, and provides art for local bands.  She lives in her hometown St. Louis, MO, and maintains the website ummwave.com.

We will have select photography books 10% off.  Please join us for a fun evening of art and conversation!

Immersed in the big, sun-drenched world of 1950’s Texas oil money and social clubs, THE AFTER PARTY unfurls a story of female friendship as obsessive, euphoric, and consuming as any romance. Best friends since pre-school, the femme fatale Joan and the sharp, careful Cece are seemingly opposites. Joan is out every night; Cece is up at dawn every morning with her toddler son. But the two have grown up almost like sisters, and their lives are inexorably intertwined despite secrets they keep from each other, secrets they keep even from themselves. When Joan starts to drift beyond the borders of their confined socialite world, Cece considers it her responsibility to bring her back to the fold, for better or for worse. 

Anton DiSclafani is the author of the New York Times bestselling novel, The Yonahlossee Riding Camp for Girls. She was raised in northern Florida and now lives in Alabama with her husband and son and is Fiction Editor of the Southern Humanities Review

Please join us for her St. Louis return as she reads from and signs copies of her book.
