Explore Creative Writing at Unabridged Books this Friday

Chicago authors lead a literary expedition, Exploring Creative Nonfiction, this Friday, Sept. 26, 7pm at Unabridged Bookstore, 3251 N. Broadway.

The exploration team includes authors Wendy Ortiz (Excavation: A Memoir), Dmitry Samarov (Where To?: A Hack Memoir) and Megan Stielstra (Once I Was Cool). Take notes in your field manual as they read selections of their work. Then get a chance to dig into their process and experiences with a short Q&A. Closing the night will be a book signing and a chance to pick up their texts for further study. Wine and refreshments will be provided. The event is free and open to the public.
