Great Books Chicago takes place this weekend in various locations but is based at the Double Tree Hotel. There will be a series of event and reading, but I was pleased to see that there will be a performance of Beckett’s Endgame. I saw a performance of this play back in college and it had an odd but profound impact on me as a writer and person. The play will be at Steppenwolf and will be starring William Petersen of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation fame. The event will also feature a series of discussion about classic (or great) books.
