As of May 15, Alchemy’s Daughter has officially entered the world! Thank you to all those who came out to the pre-launch party on April 17 at the Zhou B Art Center. It was a beautiful event, set in one of the world’s most dynamic art destinations, which combines working artists’ studios and four art galleries in an 85,000 square-foot warehouse. The evening was a beautiful celebration of art and literature on a warm spring night in Chicago. If you missed the launch, you can still visit Zhou B on any “Third Fridays,” when the Center’s studios and galleries are open to the public.
Another fabulous and free Chicago event is the Printer’s Row Lit Fest on Saturday, June 6 and Sunday, June 7. I’ll be in the Chicago Writer’s Association tent, on Saturday, June 6, from 2 pm to 5 pm. Printer’s Row is Chicago’s best summer festival for book lovers, so come on out!
On June 26, 2015 at 6:00 pm, I will be participating in “Get Lit“at St. Gregory the Great Church in Chicago. I hope you join me for this casual party, which will be punctuated by a few short readings. Participating authors include myself, Joseph Malham (author of John Ford:Poet in the Desert), and Amy Andrews (co-author of Love & Salt). Jake Ishler, protégé of renowned jazz guitarist John Moulder, will be playing for us throughout the evening. More details to come.
