The purpose of the trip is to sign some books and check out the competion at the Religious Bookseller's Trade Exhibition. Michael will be signing for OSV, and I'm there on behalf of Loyola Press. On our whirlwind trip, we hope to visit a couple of shrines, per usual, see some of downtown Chicago we've not yet seen and perhaps go to Wheaton to see the museum at the Marion E. Wade Center that holds The Wardrobe (although whether it really is or not is controversial) of C.S. Lewis, as well as other memoribilia of Tolkein, Sayers and so on.
And maybe a horsie - somewhere.
