Oh, what's the matter, sad Chicagoan? Cold and snow got you down? Cooped up with cabin fever? Well, shake off those winter cobwebs and come out to the Book Cellar in the Lincoln Square neighborhood tonight (7pm, 4736 N. Lincoln), where CCLaP authors Ben Tanzer and Mark R. Brand will be reading from their books and signing copies, along with fellow local authors Giano Cromley and Joseph Peterson! On top of that, Ryan Singleton from "WordPlaySound" will be there recording the entire thing for their podcast (and I'll be there as well, recording it for our own podcast); and now add that this is one of the rare bookstores to actually sell liquor on their premises, and you've got yourself a good Friday night indeed. Kick that Old Man Winter in the nuts like he deserves, and come join us tonight for a warm evening of readings on a blustery January night!
