Chicago Renegade Craft Fair

I'm headed to Chicago this weekend for the Chicago Renegade Craft Fair, Saturday and Sunday, September 7 & 8. I'll be in Booth #256 along with Marcy Davy from All Things Grow. The booth is toward the Damen end of the fair on Division, away from Paulina.

It's been two years since I've done this show and I'm looking forward to a weekend in the Windy City. I'll be thinking of my friends at the Kerrytown BookFest. If you come looking for my new calendar there, you can find me next weekend at the DIY Street Fair in Ferndale with 2014 calendars fresh off the presses!

Book Business Tuesday: Memoir Recommendations

I've just passed number 33 34 for my FiftyFifty challenge on the book side and I haven't done a book roundup in a while, so I thought I'd share some of my summertime reading highlights.

I seem to have gone through a slew of memoirs recently without any set intention to do so and have been really enjoying them. I just realized as I added the pictures below that my three favorite reads reflect perfectly my favorite things in life: Art, Food and Books. How perfect!

Bad Boy by Eric Fischl

Yes, Chef by Marcus Samuelsson
