It's a big book bash weekend with not one, but two
highly recommended book signings Saturday.
First, come meet local Chi-Town Mama, Melisa
Here's what she has in store:
She'll be signing copies of Chicken in the Car and the Car
Won't Go: Nearly 200 Ways to Enjoy Chicagoland With Tweens and

She'll be at Elevenzees, which is
a fabulous boutique on the corner of Division and Wolcott
in the trendy Wicker Park neighborhood of Chicago.
Julie K, a
children's recording artist, will be at Elevenzees that day as
well, so those of you who have younger kids have an extra incentive
to visit. Garrett Popcorn Shops will also be there, with
the citie's best caramel corn to sample.
ChiIL Mama (2 ii's, 1 L) will be reviewing and giving away 2 signed
copies of Melisa (with one L) Wells' awesome book in early 2012.
It's become a dog eared and delightful addition to the front
seat of our car. This book makes a great gift for visiting
out of state friends and family as well as urban and suburban
locals. We hope to have an author interview for you, soon,
