Author Event with Bob Boone
January 26, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Join us for a conversation with local author and creative writing teacher Bob Boone about his latest work, Back to Forest High. Bob founded Young Chicago Authors in 1991. In 2002, he was named a Chicagoan of the Year by Chicago Magazine. 2009 then saw Bob hosted by First Lady Michelle Obama at the White House. It was here that he accepted an award for the Coming Up Taller Leadership Enhancement Conference on behalf of Young Chicago Authors. We are excited to have an advocate for both Chicago and Literacy at Open Books!
