Good writers, good wine

As an English major and photographer, I felt perfectly content photographing World Book Night at The Book Cellar.  Co-hosted by the Chicago Writers Conference and Chicago Women in Publishing, the event was part mixer, part reading, with a 100% Midwest feel.  Patricia Skalka read from her novel, Death Stalks Door County, about a former Chicago cop tracking a killer on the northern shores of Lake Michigan.  Then, in his soft Chicago accent, legendary author/lawyer Scott Turow read from his first novel, Presumed Innocent.  Turow talked about writing during his daily commute on the train, and marveled that his first book has sold more copies (25 million) than there are people living in Chicago.  Oh, and there was wine because The Book Cellar is good like that.
