Our Great Chicago Books Club on Sunday, May 5, will feature Jane Hamilton’s Disobedience, the author’s fourth novel, and one featuring a discovered affair in a Chicago household. The story explores a mother's affair from the perspecive of her 17-year-old son, and includes an array of fascinating storylines that take us inside a book club, Civil War reenactments, a Chicagp private prep school, and much more.
The evening begins with a cocktails at five p.m., followed by a sit-down dinner from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Dessert will be served during the book discussion, which begins at 6:30 p.m.
Registration is limited to ten for the whole program, and an additional five for discussion/dessert only. The cost for the full program is $200, which will include a new copy of the book. Cost for the discussion/dessert only is $50, including the book, or $40 without the book.
All money raised at this and other Great Chicago Books Club events helps fund our (mostly free) programming throughout the year, including our annual induction ceremony and lifetime achievement ceremonies for Sara Paretsky and Sterling Plumpp.
