Don't forget tomorrow's party!

The CCLaP Royalty Payout Party 2009

Hey, Chicagoans, don't forget CCLaP's latest social event, happening tomorrow night! It's the center's first "royalty payout" party -- basically, both of the authors CCLaP has published now, Ben Tanzer and Sally Weigel, are owed their first hundred dollars in royalties; and this is pretty astounding for electronic books being handed out for free, so I thought I'd make the payment into a public ceremony that we can all have a drink and celebrate the act of generating revenue from a purely virtual product. We're meeting up at Uncommon Ground in the Lakeview neighborhood (Clark and Grace, or across the street and one block up from Wrigley Field); people will start showing up around 7 pm, and my remarks will be at 8:00. It's an all-ages venue, although liquor will be sold, so feel free to stop by no matter what your circumstances -- just look for the people with a red sticky dot on their shirt, if you've never been to a CCLaP event before. I hope to see you there!
