Joanne Zienty, June’s Featured Reader



Join us Saturday, June 24th at 7:00 pm as we welcome Joanne Zienty,  our featured Reader for the month of June.

Joanne was born and raised on Chicago’s South Side. She spent a lot of time wandering the aisles of her local branch of the Chicago Public Library. Besides wandering, she also did a lot of reading. But when she couldn’t find the stories she wanted to read, she started writing her own.

In 2014, Joanne won the very first Soon to Be Famous Illinois Author contest, sponsored by the Illinois Library Association and the RAILS Library System for her novel, The Things We Save. She was a finalist for the 2016 BookLife Prize in Fiction sponsored by Publishers’ Weekly and in 2017 was named an “Emerging Voice” in fiction by the College of DuPage. She is currently working on her second novel.

As always, there is no cover charge. THC — supporting the arts!
