Book Release Party At Shake Rattle & Read, Tonight

Ric Addy says: "Shake Rattle & Read will be hosting our first ever book release party here tonight! - Thursday night, January 24th at 7pm. The book is Heavyweight Champion of Nothing and the author is Zak Mucha.  Stop by and meet Zak and pick up this entertaining crime caper that is set in the Chicago area!"

Zak will read from his book, hopefully sell some copies, and repair to Fat Cat when "Ric kicks us out," according to the event's Facebook page.

The Reader gave Zak and the book a favorable review, saying "Zak Mucha has done admirable work as a writer (the novel The Beggar's Shore, the intro to Andrew Vachss and Frank Caruso's Heart Transplant, the Reader's 2004 Pure Fiction issue) and admirable work at his day job as a counselor providing mental health services in Chicago. But he draws on a previous job—moving furniture—for the framework of his new novel, Heavyweight Champion of Nothing."

Drop by tonight, hear a local author read his work, enjoy the Shake Rattle and Read ambiance, consider buying a book, and then head down the street for a drink afterwards.  Can't really get more Chicago than that.
