The kind folks at the University of Chicago creative writing department have invited me to do a reading and collect an "emerging writer in creative nonfiction" award. Therefore, I will be in the fair city of Rahm Emanuel TOMORROW, Thursday, Feb. 24. The details:
WHAT: Speaking at the University of Chicago
WHEN: Tomorrow, Thursday Feb. 24, at 4:30
WHERE: Rosenwald Hall, 1101 E. 58th Street, Room 405
WHY: A free trip to my second favorite American city! Also: I love meeting student writers!
One fun part of this event is that I was asked to choose a student to read alongside me. I went through about 20 nonfiction essay submissions, and the winner is Michael Lipkin, a writer and editor at student newspaper The Chicago Maroon.
Hope to meet some blog readers there!
