Friends of NIU Libraries sponsors
evening of pizza with author E.E. Knight

DeKalb, Ill. — Friends of Northern Illinois University Libraries is sponsoring an evening of pizza and discussion with author and NIU alumnus E.E. Knight about his book, “Choice of the Cat,” the April selection for the DeKalb Public Library’s Destination Wonder SF Book Club.

The event is free and open to the public. It will be held at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 9, at Pizza Villa, 824 W. Lincoln Highway, DeKalb. The DeKalb Public Library is co-sponsoring the evening.

Knight is an award-winning author of works in the science fiction, fantasy and horror genres. “Choice of the Cat” is his second book in the “Vampire Earth” series.

The Friends of NIU Libraries was founded in 1983 as an association of library supporters interested in developing and supporting the resources of University Libraries. Through membership, gifts and bequests, the group provides funds for the purchase of materials that the library is unable to acquire. Throughout the year, the Friends also hosts speakers, programs and book appraisal fairs open to the public.

For more information on the event, call (815) 753-8091.
