Lake Forest Literary Festival '08

I can hardly believe we're already into our fourth year of the Lake Forest Literary Festival, but the time is nigh, people. This year's LFLF will kick off March 25th with Raymond Federman working some Beckett mojo, and continue through several days of literary splendor. Everything is free and open to the public, and well worth the drive up from Chicago. If you're coming, let me know. We'll grab a beer.

Note that this year we're also colonizing the city of Chicago, or at least a corner of it, and holding an LFLF reading at Powell's North Bookstore on the evening of March 27th. Excelsior!

Here's the schedule of main events (you can get more detailed info by clicking on the picture of the poster, above):
