A Saturday Evening Pre: Cocktail Hour Reading and Discussion featuring Renowned Writers Stephen Elliott and Luis Alberto Urrea, and Emerging Writer Caroline Picard
Saturday, December 5, 6:30pm at Bar DeVille
A cocktail hour reading and discussion featuring novelists and nonfiction writers Stephen Elliott and Luis Alberto Urrea – two of today’s most innovative and honored writers – as well as up-and-coming fiction writer and publisher, Caroline Picard. Each will read from new work and answer questions.
Evening hosted by Jonathan Messinger. Cofounder of Featherproof Books and books editor at Time Out Chicago.
Elliott is touring in support of his recent memoir The Adderall Diaries – described as “genius” by both the San Francisco Chronicle and Vanity Fair.
Urrea’s most recent books are the 2009 novel Into the North and The Hummingbird’s Daughter – culmination of 20 years of research and writing. The historical novel tells the story of Teresa Urrea, sometimes known as The Saint of Cabora and the Mexican Joan of Arc.
The reading will take place in Bar DeVille’s lushly furnished parlor – perfectly suited for a Saturday evening of storytelling and conversation.
Reading attendees will receive a bracelet granting a one-dollar discount on each drink!
