Billy’s back in Chicago this week, and he couldn’t have picked a better time to come home. Everyone’s buzzing about the news that Mayor Richard Daley will be retiring, and wondering what happens next. Last night, at Billy’s reading at Quimby’s Bookstore in Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood, over 50 people came together to start creating a vision for the city’s future.
To keep up with/join their continuing conversation, join the new Chicago A. D. (After Daley) Facebook page.
