If you missed writer Michael Chabon’s moving talk a few weeks back on his new book, Manhood for Amateurs, and the art of being a dad, don’t make the same mistake when the local son and Crossing California author Langer reads from his own new book, My Father’s Bonus March, a portrait of both Langer’s father, Seymour, and Seymour’s Depression-era generation.
GO: Nov 5 at 6. Cindy Pritzker Auditorium, Harold Washington Library, 400 S State. chipublib.org
