Hilary Wagner @ Beverly Arts Center


Still on holiday vacation? Fantasy author Hilary Wagner will be in Beverly tomorrow for an Author Afternoon. She'll be reading from her debut young adult novel Nightshade City, which tells the tale of an underground city of anthropomorphized rats living under a brutal dictatorship and the ragtag heroes that stage a coup. Author Medeia Sharif said "When I was reading it I thought to myself, 'if Dickens wrote about rats, he would have written Nightshade City.'" Beverly Arts Center, 2407 W. 111th St., Chicago, (773) 445-3838. $5 admission, $4 for center members. Wednesday, December 29 at 2pm.
