Kate Gray with special guest Cin Salach (Wednesday, October 22 at 7:30pm)
7:30 p.m.

Carry the Sky

Reading and Signing

In this debut novel set in 1983 at an elite Delaware boarding school, Kate Gray takes an unblinking look at bullying. Taylor Alta, the new rowing coach, arrives reeling from the death of the woman she loved. Physics teacher Jack Song, the only Asian American on campus, struggles with his personal code of honor when he gets too close to a student. These two young, lonely teachers narrate the story of a strange and brilliant thirteen-year-old boy who draws atomic mushroom clouds on his notebook, pings through the corridors like a pinball, and develops a crush on an older girl with secrets of her own. Named one of 11 Must-Read Books Set in High Schools by Bustle magazine, Carry the Sky sings a brave and honest anthem about what it means to be different. Cin Salach's

name is synonymous with the performance/slam poetry scene in Chicago and around the country. She is the author of the poetry collection Looking for a Soft Place to Land andWhen I Am Yes. Cin and Kate will be in conversation about their work and the process of beginning in poetry and moving onto other forms.

Sappho's Salon (Saturday, October 25 at 7pm)
7 p.m.

Featuring Jenny Magnus and the Crooked Mouth and poet, Sheila Donohue

Jenny Magnus and the Crooked Mouth says they are "pretty hard to classify stylistically. Each of our five members writes songs, and each has a distinct and different way of coming at things. Our sounds range from folksy to Brecht-y and places in between. There are stories inside them. Many stories." Sheila Donohue is a performance poet with four National Poetry Slam Champion titles, founder of duets for poetry, Betty's Mouth, and author of The Avalanche Expert. She has enjoyed feature performances of her poetry and comedic writings at Steppenwolf, Ravinia, Curious Theatre Branch, the Green Mill, the Art Institute, and the Chicago Cultural Center and on Oprah and National Public Radio.

$7-$10 sliding scale suggested donation. Light refreshments and lots of fun!

Barbara Mahany (Wednesday, October 29 at 7:30pm)
Slowing Time: Seeing the Sacred Outside Your Kitchen Door Read Local Author Reading Join us for a reading and conversation with Barbara Mahany, longtime Chicago Tribune feature writer. Slowing Time, a collection of meditative essays, was picked by Publishers Weekly as one of the Top 10 religion books for fall 2014. She explores the themes of paying attention and carving out quietude among the noise and the whirl of the modern-day domestic. Before joining the Tribune, Mahaney was a pediatric oncology nurse at Children’s Memorial Hospital in Chicago. She is married to Pulitzer Prize-winning architecture critic, Blair Kamin, and together they’ve raised two sons in both their Catholic and Jewish traditions and faiths.
