Sam Weller @ The Book Cellar


Wednesday, July 7, The Book Cellar welcomes Sam Weller, reading from his recently released Listen to the Echoes: The Ray Bradbury Interviews.
Weller's The Bradbury Chronicles was the winner of the Society of Midland Authors award for best biography in 2005. Weller is a local journalist, Columbia College professor and highly sought after lecturer on the life and works of celebrated science fiction author Ray Bradbury. Julia Keller of The Chicago Tribune calls Listen "a book that's feisty and that charges full-speed ahead, a book that practically levitates out of your hands as you turn the pages - there is that much energy in it, that much love for life and for books and for the people who make and read them." Ray Bradbury himself says "Sam Weller knows more about my life than I do." The Book Cellar, 4736 North Lincoln Avenue, (773) 293-2665, Wednesday, July 7 at 7pm.
