Authors Gint Aras, Jennifer Boyle DuBose, Bruce Steinberg and Donald G. Westlake will be featured at the next Waterline Writers event on Sunday, January 21st at 7 pm. Gint Aras, author of the accomplished first novel, The Fugue, will read from his memoir-in-progress, detailing struggles with racism and identity while growing up in Cicero as a descendant of WWII refugees. Jennifer Dubose, author of Tales from the Motherhood, a long-running Kane County Chronicle column, speaks to all of us with clarity and power in ‘Talking with Children After Roy Moore’; Bruce Steinberg reveals the trauma endured by ‘Bird Woman’, one of four fascinating characters in his upcoming novel, Chasing Godot; and Donald G. Westlake, author of the poetry collection ELBURN: Forty-four Miles to Chicago, will introduce us to his memorable mother with ‘Dignity’.
Admission is $5/$3 students. You’ll have the opportunity to purchase signed copies of authors’ books, beer from Solemn Oath Brewery, wine from Bright Angel Wines, a hand-tooled pen from Wooden Writers or a hand-constructed book from Tieri Ton.
