Event Spotlight: Chip Kidd @ Quimby's

Chip Kidd, who has created some of the greatest book covers you've seen, among other graphic design projects, comes to Quimby's on Wednesday to talk about his new book The Learners. The novel is about a college graduate who lands his first job as a graphic designer at an ad agency that leads him to participate in an experiment in the Yale psychology department, forcing him to reexamine "his past, his soul, and the nature of human cruelty." Free at 7pm at 1854 W. North Ave. Call 773-342-0910 for more information.
