Chicago Writers Association has launched a new literary series called The Chicago Way. Each event will feature Chicago authors and Chicago topics, and each month features a new format tailored to the featured author. This Sunday, March 27th, they will be featuring Michael Harvey (author of The Chicago Way, The Fifth Floor, The Third Rail) and an audience-interactive conversation hosted by Scott Miles. Prior to the interview playwright Mary Beth Hoerner reads a short selection from Harvey's work. The night will also feature Reading Under the Influence's Julia Borcherts hosting a "brainstorm your own Michael Harvey-style, Chicago-based crime novel plot" game with prizes.
It sounds like a fun night of lit and laughs, and it takes place at Hidden Shamrock (back room) at 2723 N. Halsted St. from 7pm to 8:30pm.
