News & Opinion: On a fictional note. Well, it's true. McSweeney's will be live on(line) air.

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 4:55 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

With 800-CEO-READ having a sister that's an independent bookstore, we hear about a fair amount of fiction titles. Some of those coming from McSweeney's -- a favorite independent publisher of many here.
On this day (Friday), one of our favorites will join another of our local favorites on a conversation (and possibly some music) revolving around McSweeney's. Milwaukee's independent radio station 91.7 WMSE is bringing in the McSweeney's folks from 1:30 - 3:00PM CST.
Feel free to tune in via terrestrial signal or stream. You can find both links over on the left-hand side of the WMSE website.
And, if you're in Milwaukee, McSweeney's book editor Eli Horowitz will join McSweeney's author Deb Olin Unferth over at our sister's bookstore this evening.
And on to the weekend!
