A reader writes about an interesting event put on by Columbia:
I'm writing about an event coming up March 13-18, much of it taking place in or near the South Loop neighborhood - Columbia College Fiction Writing Department's Story Week Festival of Writers. Celebrating its 15th year this March, Story Week is a weeklong celebration of the written word, featuring book readings, conversations, performances, book signings and more - its often been called the "Lollapalooza of the literary world". Best of all, it is all free and open to the public!
The Lollapalooza of the literary world? Must be good...
(hat tip: JL!)
