Event Spotlight: Switchback Books Fundraiser

The great independent publisher Switchback Books will hold a fundraiser on Thursday to help the production of their latest book, The Haunted House by Marisa Crawford. The book is the 2008 winner for the Gatewood Prize for a debut book of poems by a woman. The fundraiser will take place at Irish Eyes, 2519 N. Lincoln Ave., where your tips will go toward Switchback. With beers at only $2.50 for the night, you'll have plenty leftover in your wallet to donate. The event starts at 7pm; call 773-348-9548 or email editors[at]switchbackbooks[dot]com for more information.
