Hey, it’s the end of the day and I haveÂ a spare 21 minutes. Kind of like finding a ten-spot in an old pair of trousers. Here’s some stuff of local interest:
* The fall literary season comes a-calling. In a single day this week, we had schedule announcements from the Humanities Fest, Nextbook, the Poetry Foundation, and the University of Chicago’s Poetry and Poetics program. I could definitely see Snyder.
* This week’s NewCity offers more details on Dybek’s return to Chicago. He’ll be Northwestern University’s first Distinguished Writer in Residence.
Finally, I shouldn’t care, but this kind of depresses me. Dalkey started in Chicago, you know.
