A slower week for bookies, but remember it's quality, not quantity. And the events listed are definitely quality:
Story prize nominee, Joe Meno, reads from his new novel THE GREAT PERHAPS at Quimby's Bookstore (1854 W. North Ave.) Thursday, May 7 at 7:00pm. Meno is a gifted writer and it's always a pleasure to hear him read.
