This Great Chicago Books Club installment features a recent poetry collection that is already a Chicago classic. Nate Marshall will be the honored guest as we discuss Wild Hundreds, a book that explores the rapper and breakbeat artist's far South Side terrain between 100th and 130th Streets. The event will be held in a private home; we'll provide the location if you inquire or register. The first half of the evening is a cocktail party; the second half will be a discussion of Nate's career and book. Registration fee is $60, including a paperback copy of the book. The money raised supports the Chicago Literary Hall of Fame's other programming, including free events like exhibits, lifetime achievement ceremonies, and youth workshops. Registration is limited to about 20 people.
