I'm delighted to announce I'll be making two appearances in the City of the Big Shoulders next week. On Wed, June 3, I'll be part of Chicago's long-running Reading Under the Influence reading and trivia series at Sheffield's. Trivia theme for the night is TOOLS, and my questions will be related to solar power. If you know your Copernicus from your Galileo, you might just win a free drink at the bar. The festivities start at 7 p.m.
Then on Sat, June 6, I'll be reading from Love Songs of the Revolution at City Lit Books, an indie favorite located in Logan Square. The reading begins at a very civilized 5 p.m., which means you can get your dose of literary goodness and still have time for a night of wild abandon.
In between I'm planning to do an informal Book Bike Tour of indie bookstores in town. If you want to nominate a favorite store that I absolutely shouldn't miss, please let me know! I also hope to stop by Chicago's Balzekas Museum of Lithuanian Culture, and the Grand Duke Restaurant that serves Lithuanian food. After all, Chicago has one of the largest communities of Lithuanian descent in the world.
Here are the details on my readings in Chicago. If you can't make it there, please pass on this info to friends in the Windy City, and tell them to stop by and say hello.
