Sept 18: Audrey Niffenegger at Politics and Prose

Anyone going to this? I'm going to try to make it.

Audrey Niffenegger - The Night Bookmobile

Start: September 18, 2010 - 3:30pm
End: September 18, 2010 - 4:30pm

Readers know Niffenegger from The Time Traveler’s Wife, but her involvement with books is visual as well as literary. A professor at the Columbia College Chicago Center for Book and Paper Arts, she has produced two “novels-in-pictures,” and now a graphic novel. First serialized in The Guardian, this is the story of Alexandra, a reader who becomes a librarian in order to find the elusive night bookmobile containing everything she has ever read.
