Link to Come
American Gun: A Poem by 100 Chicagoans, launches just before Thanksgiving with an event designed to provide a hint at the book's power and reach. Big Shoulders Books, Chicago Literary Hall of Fame, and the Guild Literary Complex co-sponsor an event that will include the showing of the book trailer, a video of 10 actors reading separate stanzas from the poem, and then a panel discussion moderated by Andrea Change. Panelists will include the book's editor, Chris Green, as well as Julie Parson Nesbitt, Brenda Cardenas, Jacob Saenz, and Nile Lansana.
