Mirabee Reading in Chicago & Michigan Plus New Opportunties for All!

    Hi Everyone,

    I will be leaving for my Midwest part of my book tour on Tuesday so I wanted to post a couple new things coming up and also to tell you where I will be reading next week in case some of you live in Chicago or Michigan. I'll be reading THIS Wednesday, Sept. 21 at 7 pm at the Book Stall in Winnetka, IL, then on Thursday, Sept. 22 at 7 pm I'll be reading at the Book Cellar in Chicago. I'll also be signing books in the day on Thursday at Women & Children First in Chicago at 11:30 am. After my events in Chicago, I will head to Holland, MI and do a public reading with poet Chris Dombrowski on Tuesday, September 27th at Hope College. You can find out all my event details on my website here (and I'll be adding more dates and details before I leave): http://thememorypalace.com/calendar
