Get Obsessed at Uncharted Books this Friday

If you've yet to chart Uncharted Books, Logan Square newest and only used book store, this Friday, December 7 at 7pm is the perfect time to visit as novelist Sarah Terez Rosenblum hosts a reading of local authors exploring the theme of obsession.

hereself when she's missing.jpgRosenblum will read from Herself When She's Missing (recently reviewed by Curve magazine), a novel Rosenblum describes as "post-modern in form (lists, 3x5 cards, even the occasional screenplay), but classical in theme: a tale of a girl desperate for something like, but not quite love."

Rosenblum will be joined by fellow obsessors Robyn Okrant, author of Living Oprah: My One Year Experiment to Walk the Walk of the Queen of Talk; creative writing instructor Scott Onak; recent winner of the Our Town Short Story Contest Michael McCauley; author and artist Chai Wolfman, and Fictlicious founder Micki LeSueur.

Explore the musty literary sanctuary of Uncharted Books at 2630 N. Milwaukee Ave.
