Event Spotlight: Jen Lancaster @ Hopleaf

Local author Jen Lancaster, known for her biting wit in chick-lit type novels, comes to the Hopleaf on Wednesday to read from her new work Pretty in Plaid: A Life, a Witch, and a Wardrobe, or, the Wonder Years Before the Condescending, Egomaniacal, Self-Centered Smart Ass Phase. The great thing about this reading is not only that you'll get to hear Lancaster talk about her work, but you'll also help Literacy Works in the process. All proceeds from the reading's $10 suggested donation will go toward helping fund this local literacy non-profit and that's always a good place to send your money. The reading will take place at 7:30pm at 5148 N. Clark St. Email info[at]litworks[dot]org for questions and information.
