Take a Class on Nelson Algren's Chicago

Are you someone looking to meet new people? Or maybe you just can't get enough of our July 2006 book club pick, The Man with the Golden Arm. In either case, consider checking out "Nelson Algren's Chicago," a class being offered this fall through Continuum, Loyola University Chicago's new continuing education program. According to the course description, the class will focus on The Man with the Golden Arm and Algren's prose poem, Chicago: City on the Make.
