Not that many readings, but there are quite a few signings and release parties. Here are a few to check out:
Stop by Book Cellar (4736 N. Lincoln) for Local Authors Night on Wednesday, September 16th at 7:00pm. This month's guests are Tasha Alexander (Tears of Pearl), Claire Zulkey (An Off Year), Scott Blackwood (We Agreed to Meet Just Here) and Joan Napre (Beautiful Dreamer).
Also on Wednesday, David Ellis signs copies of his new book, THE HIDDEN MAN at the Webster Place Barnes and Noble (1414 W. Webster). The show doesn't start until 7:30pm so you could try to make both, but if not, catch David Ellis at the Oak Brook borders (1500 16th St.) on Friday, September 18th at 7:00pm.
If you'd rather not fight the traffic on a Friday night, head over to Women and Children First (5233 N. Clark) at 7:00pm for the Granta 108 Release Party. Have a drink with editor John Freeman and meet some of the Chicago Contributors.
