This Will Go Down On Your Permanent Record

2008_03_release.jpgWe've already covered quite a bit going on this weekend in Chicago, but if you're looking for something a little more literary-minded, we highly recommend the release party for Susannah Felt's new bookThis Will Go Down On Your Permanent Record, happening this Sunday at The Hideout. If Felt's name sounds familiar, that's because she spent several years writing for such publications as the Chicago Reader (pre-takeover) and Time Out Chicago. She now resides in sunny Birmingham, Alabama, but is back in town to promote the release of the book. We haven't gotten a chance to check the book out yet, but judging from the excerpt, it's one we'll definitely be picking up soon.

Also reading at the release party will be writers J. Adam Oaks, Patrick Somerville, and Eileen Favorite. There will also be musical performances by Chicago bands The Pawners Society and Judson Claiborne.

This Will Go Down On Your Permanent Record is available now.

This Will Go Down On Your Permanent Record Release Party, Sunday, March 30, 7 p.m., $5, The Hideout, 1354 W. Wabansia
