Join us tonight at 6:30pm, as we welcome Nickolas Butler, author of the exciting Shotgun Lovesongs. A graduate of the Iowa Writer’s Workshop and a Midwesterner through and through, Butler grew up in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. He will be discussing his novel with Scott Onak

Shotgun Lovesongs is about a group of four friends who keep gettingdrawn back into the orbit of their Wisconsin hometown. One friend never left, staying in Little Wing, one became a commodities trader in Chicago, another entered the rodeo circuit, and one of them hit it big as a rock star – a character based in part on the lead singer of Bon Iver who shares Butler’s hometown. Their bonds are tested when they return home for a wedding and a secret about the woman that has meant something special to each of them is revealed.

Butler will be in conversation with Scott Onak, who teaches at storystudiochicago and The University of Chicago Graham School of Continuing Studies.

She struggles with the transition, hating everything about Athens. Just as she resigns herself to misery, Anna arrives. Though Anna’s refined, Parisian upbringing is the opposite of Maria’s, the two girls instantly bond over their common foreignness, becoming inseparable as best friends, but also as fiercest competitors. From Maria and Anna’s grade school days in ’70s, post-dictatorship Greece, to their adult lives now, Michalopoulou charts the ups, downs, and fallings-out of the powerful self-destructive bond only true best friends can have. Amanda Michalopoulou is the author of five novels, two short story collections, and a series of children’s books. One of Greece’s leading contemporary writers, Michalopoulou has won the country’s highest literary awards, including the Revmata Prize and the Diavazo Award. Her story collection, I’d Like, was longlisted for the Best Translated Book Award.
