Irish American author, poet and memoirist Kathleen Rooney comes to the IAHC Library for a reading and signing of "O Democracy!" and "Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk".
Boxfish’s historical fiction follows the career of Margaret Fishback, a pioneering copywriter for Macy’s in the 1920s and 1930s.
"O Democracy!" is a fictionalized account of Rooney’s hilarious and heartbreaking experience in politics, working for an Illinois Democratic senator in 2008.
Rooney is the author of eight books of poetry, fiction and nonfiction. She teaches English and Creative Writing at DePaul University.
An Evening with Kathleen Rooney is Thursday, June 15 at 7:30pm and is free.
