This is a light week for all things literary, but here are a few events you'll want to check out:
Tuesday, June 9th at 7:30 PM check out Quickies at the Innertown Pub (1935 W. Thomas). This reading series features short stories of 5 minutes or less. The rowdy crowd will cheer, whistle, boo and heckle, which can be just as entertaining as the readings themselves.
If you care to venture out to the burbs, Laura Caldwell will be discussing and signing copies of her latest book, RED HOT LIES at the Wacounda Public Library on Thursday, June 11th at 7:30pm. Laura is a great writer with a wonderful personality and she's definitely worth the drive.
Another suburban event worth checking out is writing duo Michael Stanley. They will be discussing and signing copies of their latest book, THE SECOND DEATH OF GOOD LUCK TINUBU on Friday, June 12th at 7:00pm at Centuries and Sleuths (7419 W. Madison) in Forest Park. Stanley is the author of the Dective Kubu series set in Botswana.
