Free Books for Your Organization

Local publisher, and friend of the Book Club, Lake Claremont Press is offering a free case of its discontinued titles for your organization, school, church or business. There are no strings attached, except that you must come to pick them up in person from the publisher (or pay $15/case for shipping). You have your choice of either (or both):

A Native's Guide to Chicago, 4th Edition (28 in a case)
A Field Guide to Gay & Lesbian Chicago (52 in a case)

Of course, the offer is only good while supplies last, but publisher Sharon Woodhouse says, "Don't be shy—we need the warehouse space and we want to get these books into appreciative hands while the information is still somewhat current."

So, what are you waiting for? Contact Lake Claremont Press at 312-226-8400 or email lcp[at] for more information.

Thanks, Alice! We still have 40 cases to go, so there's plenty to go around.
