The annual “Chicago Tribune Printers Row Lit Fest” is taking place this weekend, June 8-9. Authors, booksellers, musicians, family entertainment stages, and loads of fab food make Chicago’s book fair a truly festive outdoor event. I’ll be there both days with Red Anemone Books (table 152) for book signings, and to launch Tornado Days, my first collection of short stories. Be sure to stop by to say hello.
“Whether she’s writing about an unscrupulous dentist, a courageous albino woman, a butcher with dark edges, or a grief-stricken couple, Christine Todd’s stories contain unexpected twists, and surprising “aha” moments. Like the bereaved couple in her title story, her characters live through their own “Tornado Days,” their lives changed forever, in an instant.”
If you’re looking for a good summer read, Tornado Days fits the bill. Please see Red Anemone’s Books page for more details.
