Chicago Chic-Lit Author Stacey Ballis Releases New Foodie Novel

Stacey Ballis, local Chicago author best known for her contemporary chick-lit depicting modern and identifiable women, releases her sixth novel, Off the Menu on Tuesday, July 3. Off the Menu is described by Ballis as a "foodie novel" and includes recipes for the reader's indulgence. Ballis is BFF with the likes of fellow Chicago chick-lit author Jen Lancaster and Jennifer Weiner, authors of Good In Bed and In Her Shoes, who include Ballis' new title in both of their summer reading lists. Ballis will be making her way throughout Chicagoland with events in the city and the 'burbs, including a book signing with gal pals the Jens (Lancaster and Weiner) in Lake Zurich on Friday, July 13 at Lake Zurich Middle School South. She'll also be reading and eating Tuesday, July 17 at TipsyCake in Bucktown, 1944 N. Damen Ave., at 7pm.
