BookBalloon is pleased to host humorist and author Kevin Guilfoile for a Q&A session March 16-18. Kevin is currently serving his fifth term as Commissioner (with John Warner) of the annual Tournament of the Books, sponsored by Powell’s and The Morning News. Bring him your questions and comments in the Forum. Registration is free.

Kevin Guilfoile’s short humor has been published in the New York Times Magazine, McSweeney’s, The New Republic, Maxim, and elsewhere. With John Warner, he co-authored and illustrated the number-one bestselling My First Presidentiary: A Scrapbook By George W. Bush. His first novel, Cast of Shadows, was published in 2005 by Alfred A. Knopf and has been translated into more than 15 languages. Cast of Shadows has been called “gripping” by the New York Times, “a masterpiece of intelligent plotting” by Salon.com, and was named one of the “Best Books of 2005” by the Chicago Tribune and the Kansas City Star. His second novel, The Thousand, will be released by Alfred A. Knopf later this year. He is also the co-founder and commissioner of the annual Powell’s/Morning News Tournament of Books. Guilfoile lives in the Chicago area with his wife and two boys.
