Black Lives Matter. The fact that it needs to be said shows how very far we still have to go as a country. We hear you and we are with you.
From March 15-21, the Columbia College Chicago Department of Creative Writing presented its 19th Annual Story Week Festival of Writers. Story Week 2015 offered a schedule jam-packed with readings, conversations with authors, panels, performances, and book signings at venues throughout Chicago—all free and open to the public.
In this annual Story Week marquee event, authors and prominent Chicagoans read selections that are by other Chicago authors or are related to Chicago. Linda Bubon, Kevin Coval, Jennifer Day, James Finn Garner, Bill Hillmann, Mitchell S. Jackson, Tina Jens, Sheryl Johnston, Billy Lombardo, Eric Charles May, Patricia Ann McNair, Christian Picciolini, James Porter, Donna Seaman, Joe Shanahan and Regina Taylor read their favorites from a wide array of work.
Hosted by literary publicist Julia Borcherts and playwright, actress, blogger, Body/Courage creator Danielle Pinnock.
