Octavia Butler @ the Harold Washington Library

As part of the Chicago Book Festival, the Nebula-, Hugo-, and MacArthur Foundation grant-winning author of Kindred will read from her new novel, Fledgling at the Harold Washington Library tonight at 6 PM. 400 S. State Street. For more information, call 312- 747-4050 or visit the website.

Andy Rourke @ Smart Bar

Yes, Andy Rouke from the Smiths. The one that sued Morrissey and Johnny Marr. The bassist. He's DJing at Smart Bar during Panic this week, spinning and signing Smiths merch. So, go ask if that whole "celibate" thing of Moz's was for real. And buy him a PBR -- they're on special for $2.
