Audrey Niffenegger @ Women and Children First


Time Traveler's Wife author Audrey Niffeneger will be at Women and Children First tonight. She'll be reading from her latest, Her Fearful Symmetry, just out in paperback. A story of ghosts, twins, London cemeteries and OCD, The New York Times calls it "mature, complex and convincing - a dreamy yet visceral tale of loves both familial and erotic, a search for Self in the midst of obsession with an Other." Women & Children First, 5233 N. Clark St., July 23, 7:30pm.
