Event Spotlight: Junot Diaz & Open Book Swap

This week there are two great events for you to attend. The first is Writers on the Record, which is hosted by Victoria Lautman and this month features Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Junot Diaz, author of The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao. The talk is free and takes place on Friday at 6pm at the Harold Washington Library.

The second event is a Book Swap put on by the great people at Open Books. It's a great way to get rid of some of the books that are cluttering up your shelves and to pick up some new reads to take their places. The Swap takes place on Saturday from 10am-2pm at the North Lakeside Cultural Center, 6219 N. Sheridan Rd. Email info[at]open-books[dot]org for more information.
