Event Spotlight: Chicago Blues Launch Party

Come celebrate the release of the new crime fiction anthology Chicago Blues on Friday at Buddy Guy's Legends. The book is packed full of local authors, including the likes of Sara Paretsky, Sean Chercover, Barbara D'Amato, Marcus Sakey, Brian Pinkerton, editor Libby Fischer Hellman and more, with contributions from Book Club authors Kevin Guilfoile and Rick Kogan. Many of the authors will be at the party to discuss their work in person, making this a great opportunity to get to know some of the faces behind the pages you read. Free at 754 S. Wabash from 5pm-8pm. Call 312-427-0333 for more information. (To get an idea of what the book is about, check out our review here.)
