Hey Chicagoans! Come to the 'Hair Lit' release party tomorrow night!

Hair Lit, Vol. 1, edited by Nick Ostdick

Hey, Chicago book nerds! What are you doing tomorrow night? It's nothing, right? Don't lie to me! Instead, why don't you come out to the Book Cellar in Lincoln Square at 7 pm, for the release of the brand-new literary anthology based on '80s metal bands, Hair Lit Vol. 1? There are so many connections between this book and CCLaP that it's ridiculous -- published by our friend Jason Behrends at Orange Alert Press, edited by our friend Nick Ostdick, featuring formerly published CCLaP author Ben Tanzer as well as friends Ryan W. Bradley, Matt Rowan, Michael Czyniejewski, Sam Weller and Kyle Beachy, this book has been a long time in the making, and I'm excited to finally see it out. Come by 4736 N. Lincoln Avenue tomorrow evening for the official kickoff, which will feature live readings by Tanzer, Weller, Rowan, Beachy and Megan Stielstra; it'll also be a great place for all your lit-scene watching and hobnobbing with local writers and publishers. I'll be there, so I hope you will be too! Here's the Facebook event page if you need it!
