Away We Go Screening

Focus Features is offering Book Club members the opportunity to attend a free screening of Away We Go, a film written by local literary superstar Dave Eggers and his wife, author Vendela Vida. The film stars John Krasinski and Maya Rudolph as a couple traveling the country in search of a place to plant their roots and raise a family. The screening will be on Wednesday, May 27th, at 7pm at AMC 600 N. Michigan Ave. and each person is invited to bring one guest. To reserve your spot, send an email to rsvpchicago[at]43kix[dot]com. Keep in mind, however, that even with the reservation, seating is first come, first served, so getting there early is probably a good idea. Thank you to Focus Features for presenting us with this great offer!

I read about this film in the New Yorker and it appealed to me. I need a good laugh!
