Authors Jane Hamilton ("The Book of Ruth") and Audrey Niffenegger ("The Time Traveler's Wife") sit down for a conversation as part of Columbia College Chicago's Story Week Festival of Writers. Booklist editor Donna Seaman will host.

3 p.m. Saturday at Gorton Community Center, 400 E. Illinois Road, Lake Forest; $10; ragdale.org
