Book Club Event: Dmitry Samarov Discusses Hack: Stories from a Chicago Cab @ The Book Cellar

9780226734736.jpeg Winter's approaching, and as the weather becomes varying degrees of inhospitable, a cab is more and more an appealing option. There are stories behind the yellow and white vehicles that dot the city, and Russian-born cab driver, artist and writer Dmitry Samarov captures some of them in Hack: Stories from a Chicago Cab. On Dec. 8 at 7pm, come talk to the author about what goes into his mobile vision of the city -- or any other questions you might have had about the book or his experiences. Free.

Here's what you do:

1. Read the book sometime in the next few weeks.*

2. Come to The Book Cellar, 4736 N. Lincoln Ave., with your comments and questions, and share them with Dmitry Samarov and the group. Get your book signed if you feel like it.

3. Hang out with other readers, meet the the Book Club editors, feel part of a greater reading community.

Questions? Let us know in the comments. Thanks, and hope to see you there!

*You can still come if you haven't read the book, but we really, really encourage it -- discussions are way more fun when everyone's on the same page (har har).
