Meet Our Readers: Chris Mendius

Chris_Mendius.jpg
Chicago author Chris Mendius earned a BSME from University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana and an MBA from University of Chicago. He started writing after college and produced a terrible screenplay, a mediocre first novel and some decent short stories. He finally hit a bullseye with Spoonful , a story influenced by his own experiences living in Bucktown in the late '90s and drawing on his sordid past to provide its authenticity. The book was released by local press Anything Goes Publishing LLC in February 2012 and awarded the Kirkus Star of Remarkable Merit. Chris lives with his family in Oak Park. Spoonful is his first published novel.

Hear Chris read on Tuesday, May 1 at 7:30 p.m. at Hopleaf's upstairs bar!
