The Chicago Contingent was still recovering from the holiday weekend and was a little late posting the must sees. But not to worry, there is still plenty to check out this week (and tune in Thursday for this week's top ten list)
Thursday, July 9th at 7:00pm, head out to Centuries and Sleuths in Forest Park where Rosemary Harris signs copies of her latest novel THE BIG DIRT NAP.
Friday, July 10th at 8:00pm come celebrate the launch of Theresa Schwegel's new book LAST KNOWN ADDRESS. The California Clipper (1002 N. California) hosts.
Stop by the Lincoln Park Zoo (2200 N. Cannon) on Saturday, June 11th between noon and 5:00pm to visit the Digital Bookmobile. Sponsored by the Chicago Public Library, the bookmobile will help guests download audiobooks, music, and more from the library's website.
And for those of you attending Thriller Fest this weekend:
Drop by the HarperCollins book signing at the Mysterious Bookshop (58 Warren St.) on Friday, July 10th 5:30-7:30pm. Authors include James Rollins, Steve Martini, Jamie Freveletti, Sean Chercover, and Hallie Ephron.
And be sure to stop by the bar at the Grand Hyatt New York where agents, authors, and industry professionals will be mixing and mingling. I'll be there, beer in hand, so if you're in NY, swing by and say hello!
