Convince Us

By Margaret Hicks in Arts & Entertainment on Nov 1, 2006 3:59PM

Sometimes we here at Chicagoist find ourselves neglecting things -- the litter box, our family, other people’s children; so for this month’s Convince Us we need suggestions for reading biographies. We haven’t read many biographies, either auto or otherwise, and we feel the need to see what real life is like instead of the make-'em-ups.

So give us your suggestion of a biography we should read; we’ll pick one, read it, review it and post our review next month.

You bring as many as fifteen books with you and swap out for another fifteen books -- such a good idea. They’ll also have Jessica Hopper, Peter Margasak, Monica Kendrick and Liz Armstrong to entertain, should be fun.

Alright, now give us some biographies to read.

You can go to the Reader Book Swap Thursday, Nov. 2, from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at Logan Square Auditorium, 2539 N. Kedzie.
