Event Spotlight: Salman Rushdie @ Harold Washington Library

Here's a chance to see one of the greatest novelists of our time in the flesh: Salman Rushdie. Come to the Harold Washington Library on Thursday to read from and discuss his newest work The Enchantress of Florence. He'll also be available to sign books, but only two per person so if you're a big fan you'll unfortunately have to leave your personal Rushide library at home. Free at 6pm. Call 312-747-4300 for more information.
