Event Spotlight: Rick Kogan & Charles Osgood @ Lincoln-Belmont Library

On Thursday, Rick Kogan and Charles Osgood celebrate the release of Sidewalks (Volume II), the second volume of their collected Tribune columns and photographs. This book will be of particular interest to regular Book Club attendees as you might recall, several months ago, finding yourself on the business end of Osgood's exacting lens. No confirmation on whether we made it into the final cut, but regardless the book is sure to be a wonderful compendium of all things Chicago told in Kogan's inimitable voice and accompanied by Osgood's fine photography. Free at 7pm at the Lincoln-Belmont Branch Library, 1659 W. Melrose. Call 312-744-0166 for more information.

Not make the cut? You'll find some members of the club on page 151. Thanks for the plug and the kind words.
Onward, Rick
