Dead Authors to Attend Printers' Ball

Kind of. Theater troupe Collaboraction will be dressed up as passed-on Chicago authors tonight at the 2011 Printers' Ball. They'll give ball-goers a little advice, a few words of wisdom, and the chance to win a Kindle. Seek a dead author out for an entry slip, write a literary quote on the slip, bring the slip to the Chicago Publishes table on the 8th floor, and cross your fingers! At the end of the night, perhaps you'll go home happy with a new Kindle.
