This week's edition of our new e-magazine, The CCLaP Weekender released every Friday morning, is now online for your free downloading pleasure. It features a long-form interview with Chicago author Megan Stielstra; a photography feature highlighting the work of South Korean artist Jaejin Hwang; and our usual look at the upcoming week of Chicago literary events. Use the links below to access it right now.
And don't forget about the citywide release party we're having next week for CCLaP's new "city all-star" student anthology, Chicago After Dark! It's on Tuesday, October 28th from 6 to 9 pm at City Lit Books in the Logan Square neighborhood (2523 N. Kedzie); it will feature free food and liquor, plus performances from five of our 31 contributors, as chosen randomly out of a hat. Although we're holding separate smaller release parties at all the contributing campuses as well, this will be the one and only opportunity to meet all 31 contributors together, so I hope all your locals will have a chance to come out. See this event's Facebook listing for even more.
