La Tienda Dolar and Library Opening

There are a couple more interesting events that have popped up that I thought you might enjoying having brought to your attention. The first is a special Dollar Store reading held at the Rudy Lozano Branch Library in Pilsen. What makes it special is that this reading will be bilingual, with authors Tanya Saracho and Ignacio de Alba and a translated reading of a Jonathan Messinger original. 7pm at 1805 S. Loomis on Thursday. (And after that you can catch a bus with the Dollar Store crew to head to the Double Door for the Printers' Ball. Thursday's just chock full of literary things to do.)

The second is the opening of the Bucktown/Wicker Park Branch of the Chicago Public Library, situated at 1701 N. Milwaukee. Maylor Daley and others will be there for the dedication ceremony and the reception that follows, starting at 10:30am on Friday. The opening is free and open to the public, so if you've got the morning free go and celebrate the city bringing the books to the people.
