CCLaP Hosts An Evening with Nathan Rabin

via Jason Pettus @ CCLaP:

The Chicago Center for Literature and Photography (cclapcenter.com) is
proud to announce its last live event of 2010, a long and informative
talk with Nathan Rabin, head writer of the pop-culture guide AV Club
(avclub.com), on Monday, November 29th at Stage 773 (formerly the
Theatre Building Chicago), just west of the Belmont el stop. Author of
the bestselling memoir “The Big Rewind” and now essay series “My Year
of Flops,” Rabin and other “AV Club” staffers are regulars of the NPR
and cable-talk-show circuit, as this former offshoot of the satirical
publication The Onion has gained a life of its own in the past few
years, and has become an outlet for some of the smartest and funniest
critical essays currently being printed in this country. All of these
subjects and more will be discussed, first in a traditional one-hour
sit-down interview in front of a live audience with Jason Pettus,
executive director of CCLaP, then while taking those audience members’
questions for another half-hour; to open things up will be the
cultishly loved local writer Ben Tanzer (bentanzer.blogspot.com),
whose four publications include the CCLaP books “Repetition Patterns”
and “99 Problems,” and who will be performing a brand-new 15-minute
story on the subject of bad movies. After the event Rabin will be
signing his books, which will be available for purchase in the lobby.

Monday, November 29th, 7 to 9 pm
Stage 773 (formerly Theatre Building Chicago)
1225 W. Belmont
$6, available at the door or in advance at (stage773.org)
