  1. Tony Peregrin

    Hi Jon,

    My name is Tony Peregrin and I am an entertainment and culture journalist based in Chicago. (I am a contributing writer to (part of the Gothamist network) and a Senior Writer for Chicago’s GLBT publication, Windy City Times. )

    It looks like you are coming to Chicago in August, and I’d like to do a Q&A with you about the book, the reading, etc. So, hit me back via my e-mail and let’s take it from there.

    I am including a couple of recent interviews for Chicagoist so you can get a feel for the kind of writing I do.

    Look forward to hearing from you soon.
