I’ll be brushing shoulders with the ghost of greatness at the LOSING TOUCH signing event on April 12th. The historic Hemingway house in Oak Park will be the site of the next Pop-Up Book Fair hosted by 826CHI, the Oak Park Library, the Ernest Hemingway Foundation, and Curbside Splendor Publishing.

Come to 200 North Park Avenue in Oak Park from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. a week from Saturday for an afternoon of readings, writing, and plenty of fun.

The event is FREE with RSVP; otherwise $8 at the door and it will feature more than 40 independent publishers, children’s programming provided by 826CHI, and authors personalizing their books … just for you:

From 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m., Ware and Chute lead a discussion about comics and graphic novels, with a Q & A to follow. Donald G. Evans of the Chicago Literary Hall of Fame will lead a discussion from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. on how Hemingway the person has inspired fictional characterization. And from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., Sindelar will introduce the people, places and activities that shaped the legendary author.

The Oak Park Public Library will be hosting a 21+ after party from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. It’s your chance to tie one on in a public library–reason enough to go–but there’s also going to be live readings and music. The address is 834 Lake Street in Oak Park, and I hope to see you there.

I’ll be wearing my beer goggles.

Just like “Papa” would have wanted it.
