Donna Seaman, associate editor of Booklist and Chicago Public Radio book critic, is joined by literary agent Michelle Brower, bookstore owner Linda Bubon, author John Dale and publisher Johnny Temple for a panel discussion.

The Columbia College Chicago Fiction Writing Department presents its 14th Annual Story Week Festival of Writers. Affectionately known as the “Lollapalooza of literary events,” Story Week 2010 offers a feast of free readings, conversations with authors, panels, performances, and book signings at venues across the city. Co-sponsored in part by the Chicago Public Library and Metro, this program is made possible in part by a grant from the Illinois Art Council, a state agency.

The theme for 2010, Genre Bending: The Faces of Fiction, reflects the increasingly porous boundaries between literary and genre fiction. Whether based in truth or pure fiction, this year's featured authors use myriad fictional forms to shed light on the struggles, trials, and triumphs of the human race.
