Wild Wet World Book Night in Chicago 4-23-13 #WBN13

It was a cold, dark and stormy night in Chi-town and the city looked like a gritty crime novel or film noir.....   In other words, perfect weather to curl up with a great book!   We did our best to make that possible.

Here at ChiIL Mama we dig reading and are excited to share our book love through reviews, blog book giveaways, literacy volunteering, and cool movements like World Book Night.

Du-Jay and ChiIL Mama had a great time passing out 20 free copies of The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho for World Book Night 2013 at Avondale Park & CircEsteem.

Thanks to Book Cellar for being our pick up point and arranging for free shirts for the volunteers.

Worlds collide alert:   The fabulous folk over at Lookingglass Theatre gave a free block of Still Alice tickets to Book Cellar for WBN13 volunteers since Still Alice was one of this years' excellent title selections.   We love it when our friends play well with others.  ChiIL Live Shows caught opening night of Still Alice and highly recommend it!

When we gave out the free WBN books, we were solo at Avondale Park but in good company at CircEsteem.   Other World Book night volunteers were there with another rockin' recommended title to give out.
