Folk minstrel and film buff Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy curates a double feature at the Cinefamily / Silent Movie Theater tonight at 8 pm. His “Ladies Night” features Nicholas Ray's A Woman's Secret (1949), with Maureen O'Hara as a singing teacher blamed for the shooting of her smarmy protégé. The film is followed by Wim Wenders' Alice In The Cities (1974), German new wave film about a reporter who helps a little girl find her grandmother - “a woman whose name and address she doesn't remember, and whose house can only be identified by a single photo of an unmarked front door.” NOTE: Bonnie 'Prince' Billy will not be performing a live set during the evening's show. Tickets $12.
Tonight at 7 pm author Sasha Abramsky presents and signs Inside Obama’s Brain at Book Soup. Abramsky interviewed nearly 100 of Obama's “current and former friends, colleagues, classmates, teachers, staff, mentors, basketball buddies, fellow Chicago activists, media consultants, editors, and even his next-door neighbors from Hyde Park. These people each know a part of Obama's life and career, which the author blends the pieces into a uniquely detailed analysis.”
