Reading Under The Influence, Story Week and One Book Collaboration

With all the literary events going on in March, it should be Chicago's unofficial Literary Awareness Month. On Wednesday, March 7, settle down with one of the city's premier reading series, Reading Under the Influence. Their March event partners with Columbia College's Story Week Festival of Writers and Chicago Public Library's One Book program.

Featured readers are all Columbia College Fiction Writing department faculty and staff. Writers showcasing original include Fiction Writing Chair Randy Albers, along with professors Eric May and Ann Hemenway. The department's secretary Nicole Chakalis will read a selection from this year's chosen "One Book" Gold Boy, Emerald Girl by Yiyun Li.

As a bonus, anyone presenting a Chicago Public Library card will receive a copy of the One Book selection. Don't have a card? Bring proof of residency and sign up for one at the event (and then get a copy of the book).

RUI is always in the back room of Sheffield's, 3258 N. Sheffield Ave., 7pm, $3.
