Jami Attenberg to Visit The Book Cellar

middforkerri-198x300.jpg The Book Cellar welcomes author Jami Attenberg on Thursday to read from her recently-published novel The Middlesteins, praised by Jonathan Franzen and selected by The Huffington Post as a "book we're talking about."

The novel explores what happens to the Middlestein family after matriarch Edie is abandoned by her husband because she's become overweight and completely obsessed with food. Attenberg, who's written explicitly about her own "history of being fat," has covered topics like sex, technology and graphic novels for magazines like Salon and The Awl, and is a former zinester with three novels under her belt: The Melting Season, The Kept Man and Instant Love.

Stop by The Book Cellar at 4736-38 N. Lincoln Ave.
