The Book Cellar is pleased to host Chicago native Bill Hillmann as he shares his debut novel from Curbside Splendor, The Old Neighborhood.
"The Old Neighborhood is the story of teenager Joe Walsh, the youngest in a large, mixed-race family living in Chicago. After Joe witnesses his older brother commit a gangland murder, his friends and family drag him down into a pit of violence that reaches a bloody impasse when his elder sister begins dating a rival gang member. The Old Neighborhood is both a brutal tale of growing up tough in a mean city, and a beautiful harkening to the heartbreak of youth."
Happy Easter, guys and gals! We hope you get a basket full of books!
