Author and media-inventor, Robin Sloan, discusses the Internet and his new book 'Mr.Penumbra's 24-Hour Book Store' on the Afternoon Shift.

Robin Sloan is a ‘media inventor’ who blends old and new ways of telling stories. Long-time Chicago Sun-Times entertainment writer Dave Hoekstra's new book, "The Supper Club Book: A Celebration of a Midwestern Tradition," pays tribute to these regional icons. Then: local writer Samantha Irby.
