What’s the most exciting event taking place in Chicago on April 6th? According to Chris Jones of the Chicago Tribune, Barbara Vitello of the Daily Herald, and Rob Christopher of the Chicagoist, there’s only one answer: Nelson Algren Live at the Steppenwolf Theatre. And, as Chris Jones mentions, Willem Dafoe is now among the performers reading selections from Algren’s work, along with Seven Stories publisher Dan Simon and authors Barry Gifford, Don DeLillo and Russell Banks.
Tickets are still available for $20 through the Steppenwolf Theatre web site—see why some of America’s greatest novelists and performers are ready to start talking about Nelson Algren.
