Great Chicago Books Club: Rosellen Brown

Sunday, March 10, 2019
5-7:30 p.m.

Hyde Park

Chicago, IL

Private Home

Our Great Chicago Books Club on Sunday, March 10, will feature Rosellen Brown’s The Lake on Fire, the author’s first fictional foray into the Chicago landscape after nearly a quarter century living in the city. We'll have the event at Ronne Hartfield’s beautiful Hyde Park condominium, not far from the setting of Rosellen’s story, which takes place around the Columbian Exposition.

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.

Please contact Don Evans to make reservations, get the proper event address, and to arrange pickup/delivery of your book. We want to make sure you get it in time to read.
