Beyond Belief: You Decide


It’s no secret. In fact, any writer will tell you that the literary world is full of liars, cheaters and thieves. Regularly readers speculate about the amount of truth contained in the content they absorb: Did this really happen, or is this the product of some creative genius’ imagination? Some might even hope that the raunchy, revealing details of any given story carry some kind of validity. If you're a booklover who enjoys separating the lies from the legit, then Confessions: Fact or Fiction? is for you. This collection of memoirs and short stories challenges the reader to determine which tales are true and which are falsehood. Editors Herta B. Feely and Marian O’Shea Wernicke, both St. Louis natives, appear at Left Bank Books (399 North Euclid Avenue; 314-367-6731 or to share their favorite stories during an in-depth discussion of the anthology. Authors R. Dean Johnson and Nicole Louise Reid (pictured), whose writing appears in the book, also join them. The event kicks off at 7 p.m. and admission is free.
