I’m happy to announce that my book launch reading will take place at City Lit Books in Logan Square, here in Chicago, on December 17th at 6:30. Come purchase a copy of The Fugue, have it signed, meet me and support an amazing independent bookstore.
I won’t be giving a traditional reading (the kind where a writer stands in front of people and mumbles), but will instead talk about the process of writing a long book, one that took fifteen years to publish. Interestingly, some of the topics The Fugue deals with are more relevant now than they were when I first started the manuscript: the sociology of refugees, a culture of fear and secrecy, and the search for meaning in a society whose institutions are failing. Of course, I’ll read short sections.
There will be a brief musical interlude featuring world-class violinist Maria Storm. She’s going to play Bach’s Fugue from the Violin Sonata in G minor.
Afterwards, I hope interested parties will come along for a drink down at The Owl.
