On a personal note, I used to work with Scott Turow and since we both graduated from the same college, I have had a few personal conversations with him. Not only is he a great writer, but he is also truly a good person. He is a local author who supports the libraries on a regular basis. So, please go out and support him.
If you are free, stop by. On a side note, if you will already be at the ILA Conference that day (as I will), the Pickwick Theater (and the Park Ridge Library itself) is less than 5 miles up the street from the Donald E Stephens Convention Center.
I have a Library Board meeting that night, or else I would be there too.
