Unabridged Bookstore Presents Rob Delaney
Thursday, November 14, 2013 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM (CST)
EVERY TICKET PURCHASED TO THE SHOW COMES WITH A COPY OF ROB DELANEY'S BOOK. TAKE A LITTLE PIECE OF ROB HOME WITH YOU.
Join us on November 14 at 7pm as Unabridged Bookstore hosts at The Music Box Theater Rob Delaney in support of his new collection of insanely funny autobiographical essays, Rob Delaney: Mother. Wife. Sister. Human. Warrior. Falcon. Yardstick. Turban. Cabbage. In his bookRob talks about childhood, fatherhood, sex, addiction and recovery, Rob regales readers with anecdotes as wide-ranging as his youthful obsession (and pen pal relationship) with heavy metal band Danzig to drunken bungee jumping off the Manhattan Bridge, from his court-ordered stint in rehab to witnessing the miracle of his son’s birth. Tracing his journey from middle class theater geek, to public menace, to devoted family man and passionately engaged model citizen, these essays (interspersed with some of his “Greatest Tweets”) make clear why Rob is so beloved. If you have never seen Rob Delaney live you are in for a night you will not soon forget.

About Unabridged Bookstore
Owner Ed Devereux opened Unabridged Bookstore in its current location at 3251 N. Broadway in Chicago's Lakeview neighborhood on Saturday, November 1, 1980, and while it has expanded since, his vision has remained the same: to promote and sell great books. Unabridged is known for its dedicated, knowledgeable full-time staff, (and their hand-written personal recommendations) an unparalleled sale book section, and an award-winning children's section. It's safe to say that Unabridged is the only bookstore in the Chicago area where a shopper can buy the latest issue of a magazine, a copy of children's classic Goodnight Moon, or newest title, and pick up the latest literary fiction & non-fiction sensation, all in one stop.
