Story Week: Festival of Writers @ Columbia College

From Sunday, March 13 through Friday, March 18, Columbia College celebrates stories and the people who tell them through a series of events and activities, courtesy of their Fiction Department. It's a week of readings, conversations with authors, panels, performances, and book signings throughout Chicago -- all free and open to you, me, and everyone. Coming up on its 15th year, authors featured include Irvine Welsh (Trainspotting), Jennifer Egan (A Visit from the Goon Squad), National Book Award Finalist Karen Tei Yamashita (I Hotel), Audrey Niffenegger (The Time Traveler's Wife) and more.
