Author Bree Housley Reads from Memoir at City Lit

Chicago author Bree Housley will read and sign her memoir We Hope You Like This Song: An Overly Honest Story About Friendship, Death, and Mix Tapes on Tuesday, February 12 at City Lit Books in Logan Square at 6:30 p.m.

Housley's book details her best friend Shelly's early death from complications of preeclampsia a week after giving birth to her daughter, and the ensuing adventure Housley and her sister undertook in Shelly's memory. The adventure--choosing a "Shelly-like" resolution each week and completing it in seven days--formed the premise for the blog fifty2resolutions, and eventually the memoir.

Read Book Club's Q&A with Housley, and view the book trailer.

The event is free, and Housley will pass out a complimentary copy of the mix tape/cd featured in the book as a "Valentine." Come early!
