Chicago Book Launch for Rebecca Makkai’s Music for Wartime

Tonight was the Chicago launch of Rebecca Makkai‘s excellent short story collection, Music for Wartime, at Women and Children First. I completed Rebecca’s Novel in a Year program this past June at StoryStudio Chicago, and in addition to being a great writer, Rebecca is an extremely generous and astute reader and mentor. This is Rebecca’s third published book, released after her two novels, The Borrower and The Hundred-Year House.
