Debut YA Novelist: Rachel Wilson with "Don't Touch"
The Book Cellar, Friday, September 5 at 7pm
We are thrilled to host Chicago novelist, Rachel Wilson, as she celebrates the release of her debut YA book, Don't Touch.

Don't Touch is the story of Caddie. Caddie has a history of magical thinking—of playing games in her head to cope with her surroundings—but it's never been this bad before. When her parents split up, Don't Touch becomes Caddie's mantra. Maybe if she keeps from touching another person's skin, Dad will come home. She knows it doesn't make sense, but her games have never been logical. Soon, despite Alabama's humidity, she's covering every inch of her skin and wearing evening gloves to school. And that's where things get tricky. Even though Caddie's the new girl, it's hard to pass off her compulsions as artistic quirks. Friends notice things. Her drama class is all about interacting with her scene partners, especially Peter, who's auditioning for the role of Hamlet. Caddie desperately wants to play Ophelia, but if she does, she'll have to touch Peter and kiss him. Part of Caddie would love nothing more than to kiss Peter—but the other part isn't sure she's brave enough to let herself fall. Rachel M. Wilson studied theater at Northwestern University and received her MFA in Writing for Children & Young Adults from Vermont College of Fine Arts. Originally from Alabama, Rachel currently writes, acts, and teaches in Chicago, IL. Don't Touch is her first novel.

**OFFSITE** Peter Schneider @ the Goethe Institute
The Book Cellar, Tuesday, September 9 at 12pm
Peter Schneider comes to the Goethe Institute to talk about and read from his book, Berlin Now.

Berlin Now is a bold and digressive exploration of the allure of the vibrant city. Schneider takes us on an insider's tour of this rapidly metamorphosing metropolis. Schneider's perceptive, witty investigations on everything from the insidious legacy of suspicion instilled by the East German secret police to the clashing attitudes towards work, food, and love held by former East and West Berliners have been sharply translated by Sophie Schlondorff.
