Book Review Cage Match

The Chicago Tribune recently featured two reviews of works by local writers. Donna Seaman, the editor of Booklist, reviewed Hiding Out by Jonathan Messinger. And, Dick Adler reviewed the Chicago Blues anthology edited by Libby Fischer Hellmann.

But wait, our own Veronica Bond reviewed both books for the GB Book Club blog right here. Re-read her reviews of Hiding Out and Chicago Blues.
