This week we commemorate our first-ever Literary Issue, so it’s fortuitous that, at the same time, the Oak Lawn Library is hosting a week-long spring sale on hardcovers and paperbacks, CDs and DVDs (half off the usual $1-$2 prices) and magazines (all 10 cents). And as they point out, you night as well “check out the city’s only LGBT collection and get in line for Paul Russell’s The Unreal Life of Sergey Nabokov and John Irving’s In One Person. Both are popular; expect longish waits.”

In fact, John Irving will be at the Majestic Theater tonight, so read quick!

The library is located at 4100 Cedar Springs Road; it’s open 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Tuesday, Friday, Saturday and noon-8 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday.
