AROUND TOWN: ‘Story Week’ mixes national, local talent in literary rock-&-roll

The 15th Annual Story Week festival – sponsored by Columbia College Chicago’s feisty Fiction Writing Department – features a reader’s delight of top local and national talent. The festival kicks-off Sunday night and rolls through Friday, March 18. And get this: It’s all free. Patricia Ann McNair (author of the forthcoming story collection, The Temple of Air) headlines a Sunday night reading at Martyrs with Eric May and others. Jennifer Egan, fresh from snatching the National Book Critics Circle Award for A Visit from the Goon Squad, appears Monday evening in conversation with local book maven Donna Seaman at the Harold Washington Library. Power hitters Audrey Niffenegger, John McNally, Joe Meno, Tom Mula, Regina Taylor, Philip Hartigan, Sam Weller, Randall Albers, Rick Kogan, Gina Frangello, Alex Kotlowitz and Steve Edwards round out the festivities. Not to be missed: Wednesday night’s Literary Rock & Roll at Metro with Irvine Welsh (Trainspotting), Don DeGrazia (American Skin), Stephanie Shaw and others. For the full schedule: Story Week.
