Little Brother, the play, on in Chicago until July 18

Chicago's Griffin Theatre has mounted a live production of my young adult novel Little Brother, adapted by William Massolia. This is incredibly exciting; Time Out Chicago gave it four stars, saying, "Doctorow raises many worthy points about the relationship between our safeties and our freedoms, and in Milne's bracing production, newcomer Mike Harvey as Marcus makes a confident tour guide." Bill Shunn, writing in Sci-Fi Wire, said, "Little Brother is an exciting and thought-provoking production, imaginatively staged on a bare-bones set with some multimedia elements stirred in."

I've managed to wrangle a trip to Chicago to see the play on July 9 — I hope to see you there! And if July 9 doesn't work for you, I hope you can catch it on another night.
