Want even more time with your fellow book nerds? On the Friday night preceding the conference, the Ch1Con team will be hosting an informal kickoff party at the Chippewa Woods Forest Preserve from 6:00 to 7:30 PM. You can bring a picnic dinner or participate in a group order to Jimmy John’s. Friends and family are invited. (In case of inclement weather, alternately dinner will be hosted at nearby Tiffany’s Restaurant.)
