About Last Night

We had one of our biggest turnouts ever last night at The Book Cellar as people came from all over Chicago, and even from the suburbs, to talk about Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen. Thanks to everyone who came out. It was so much fun to see so many new faces, and wonderful to see our returning and regular members, too. Thanks also go to the staff at The Book Cellar for putting up with us and taking such good care of everyone. We will post some photos from the event later this week.
