Welcome! This little corner of the internet universe is devoted to the written word: novels, short stories, plays, authors, writing, publishing. All kinds of literature will get bandied about in this blog, but there is a particular focus on classic literature. However, I play fast and loose with the term "classic," so expect some unexpected entries under that particular umbrella. There will be book reviews, poetry, Chicago area literary event shenanigans, classic literature discussion (we drink wine during these post readings. To keep it classy), writing tips, and an overall attempt to wax poetic about literature and the joy, enlightenment, and inspiration it gives those of us who read this kind of stuff for fun. Discussing literature is a favorite pastime, and if it's yours, too, put up your feet and stay awhile!
