We’re kicking off Giving Tuesday early this year! Your donation today will be matched up to $10K, doubling your impact! If you donate $50 today, the Reader will receive $100.

The Reader is now a community-funded nonprofit newsroom. Can we count on your support to help keep us publishing?

Janet Fletcher, author of Cheese & Wine: A Guide to Selecting, Pairing, and Enjoying and The Cheese Course, will be signing books at Pastoral‘s Loop location (53 E. Lake) today from 3:30 to 5:30. Wine and cheese selections from her book will be served. Call 312-658-1250 for more info.
