Chicago: Anders Nilsen visits City Lit Books!

Chicago! Let us remind you that you have got another thing to add to your December calendars: Anders Nilsen is talking Rage of Poseidon this Sunday, December 15th, at City Lit Books! The event is free, begins at 4pm, and just seems like a really lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon, don't you think?

Anders will be reading from Rage and signing copies of that fine accordion book. He will also be interviewed by culture critic Jessica Hopper, who is a contributor to Chicago Reader, Spin, Pitchfork, and the author of The Girls Guide to Rocking. They are sure to share lots of brilliant, insightful things, like Anders did in today's interview for The Chicago Reader:

"Taking old stories that are 4,000 years old, you think they're not relevant," he says. "But if you bring them into the present day, you see they're stories about what it means to be human. The story about Athena ["The Girl and the Lion," in which the goddess becomes obsessed with the story of an early Christian martyr and eventually decides to live as a mortal] is one anyone can relate to, in a way. It's a story about coming of age, about growing older and losing your illusions."

City Lit Books is located at 2523 North Kedzie Blvd in Logan Square. They've got free parking if you need it. Here's the Facebook event.
