Chicago author Timothy J. Hillegonds celebrates the launch of his memoir, which  his journey--at eighteen years old, with no high school diploma, a growing rap sheet, and a failed relationship with his estranged father--from Chicago to Summit County, Colorado, where he jumps headfirst into a passionate and volatile relationship fueled by vodka, crystal meth and poverty that leads to an unplanned pregnancy. THE DISTANCE BETWEEN explores and comes to terms with such harrowing subjects as absent fathers, violence, adolescent rage, white male privilege, addiction and Hillegonds's own toxic masculinity. The event features a reading, conversation and signing.
