Essay Fiesta takes over The Book Cellar once again for an evening of Live Lit. Get here early to grab a seat and grab a drink!
World Book Night is an annual celebration dedicated to spreading the love of reading, person to person. Each year on April 23 –Shakespeare’s birthday tens of thousands of people in the U.S. go out into their communities and give a total of half a million free World Book Night paperbacks to light and non-readers. For more information about World Book Night and this year's selections, visit their website here.
Get to know both organizations, and enjoy an author reading or two. We'll provide some snacks, so grab a drink in the Book Cellar Cafe and join us!
Our World Book Night Book Giver will give away copies of Scott Turow's Presumed Innocent. We'll also feature a reading from Chicago author Patricia Skalka, whose debut novel Death Stalks Door County drops May 19.
Publisher's Weekly called Skalka's debut a "tight, lyrical first novel," and Kirkus dubs it "an atmospheric debut with enough twists to tempt puzzle aficionados."
Also scheduled to appear: Scott Turow. (Yes, the Scott Turow, author of Presumed Innocent!)
Come say hello and meet other writers and publishing professionals.
