Chicago's Story Week Festival of Writers

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. Why go: As social media shortens and abbreviates language and communication, it's good to hear about long-form story writing. Reconsider: JK -- you can't stick with anything longer than 140 characters. 3 p.m. Saturday at Gorton Community Center, 400 E. Illinois Road, Lake Forest; $10;
