City Lit Books, 2523 N. Kedzie Blvd., will host local author Laura Krughoff, who will discuss her debut novel, "My Brother's Name," at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 11.

A description of the event from City Lit Books:

"In this poignant novel about folie a deux, or shared psychosis, Jane Fields follows her brother into the bewildering landscape of mental illness with the hope that she can save him. But it soon becomes a question of how long she can survive there before she loses herself."
