One can purchase tickets for Literassociates Trivia Night (stylized LITERASSOCIATES TRIVIA NIGHT) through Eventbrite at this Webpage.  There are four days left to purchase early Bird tickets for $30 (plus a $2.54 fee), after which tickets will be $40 (plus a $3.04 fee).  One raffle ticket is $5 (plus a $1.27 fee) and a group of five raffle tickets is $20 (plus a $2.03 fee).

The Top Prize is two tickets to a Chicago Bulls game and a Chicago Bears autographed picture.  Other prizes include items from Butchers’ Tap, Corridor, Goddess and the Baker, and Escape Game.

Literassociates (stylized LITERASSOCIATES and LITerassociates in advertising) is the associate board of the C.L.A.  The C.L.A. opened the Literacenter in May of 2015 with eighteen member organizations as North America’s first non-profit shared workspace devoted to literacy.  It received the 2016 Library of Congress Literacy Awards Best Practice Award.

The 27,000-square-foot workspace has couches, armchairs, communal tables, private carrels, group workstations, and open lounges.  The fifteen meeting rooms and conference rooms can accommodate anywhere from two people to 100 people.  There are two large event spaces for parties and celebrations.  The LitLounge has foosball, shuffleboard, ping pong, Rock Bandm Wii, board games, televisions, movie projection, kitchen, and two pianos.  There are five Literascooters for getting around the place.

The Literacenter is one block east of 90/94, three blocks west of the Ogilvie Transportation Center and four blocks west of the Chicago River, and four blocks north of Old St. Patrick’s Catholic Church.  The address of the Literacenter is 641 West Lake Street, Suite 200, Chicago, Illinois 60661.  The phone number is (312) 690-4227.
