Bang Your Head at the Hair Lit Release Party this Saturday

This Saturday, Jan. 12, join Orange Alert Press for the release of Hair Lit Volume 1
at the Book Cellar, located at 4736 N. Lincoln Ave., at 7pm. The anthology features stories true to its name with homages to '80s hair metal bands by Lindsay Hunter (Daddy's), Michael Czyzniejewski (Chicago Stories) Roxanne Gay and more.

Throw up the horns for the night's readers and anthology contributors Ben Tanzer, Sam Weller, Matt Rowan, Megan Stielstra and Kyle Beachy. You won't get anything special for showing up in your sleeveless denim jacket and vintage Def Leopard tour t-shirt -- well except for a bunch of high fives and double takes -- but why not dress to impress nonetheless. Copies of the anthology will be available for purchase.
