Mary Karr @ the Art Institute of Chicago

Mary Karr will be reading at the Art Institute of Chicago next Tuesday, April 5. Attending readings is, I should say, definitely a part of the literary life I thoroughly enjoy so I'm looking forward to going - it's always exciting to see an author live whose writing I admire. I regularly use excerpts from The Liars' Club in my memoir classes, and I was blown away by her most recent memoir Lit. I'm still blown away because I can't quite figure out her take on converting to Catholicism and spirituality - further reasons why I'm looking forward to seeing her in the flesh.
