Join Chicago Tribune columnist John Warner (The Biblioracle) along with his friend and co-host Kevin Guilfoile on Thursday, May 28th at 6:30 PM CST.
Join them for a night of questions, answers, questionable answers, other fun stuff, and of course recommendations on what you should read next, based on the last five books you've read.
** We will be gathering virtually on Zoom at https://us02web.zoom.us/j/82227063221?pwd=VTRHV1BGODQ1WVdzYUduOEpHaE9VZz09
If you'd like to join and haven't used Zoom-- sign up for a free account and download Zoom prior to the meeting. It's pretty easy to get set up, but here's a linked video describing the process. **
Since 2012, John Warner has been writing a column on books and reading for the Chicago Tribune, and each week telling what people should read next, based on the most recent five books they’ve read.
He’ll be demonstrating this trick live via Zoom, aided by his good friend, Chicago novelist and screenwriter, Kevin Guilfoile. If you’d like to join the queue for a book recommendation, send a list of your five most recent reads along with your first name and last initial to email@example.com. Make sure to put “Biblioracle Live” in the subject line, and most importantly, don’t forget to tune in live to the event online.
Please send any other questions you might have for John to the same address with the same subject line. He’ll also be taking requests live, but sending ahead of time increases your odds of being selected.
Or not. Who knows? We’ve never done this before, but it should be fun.
