Thanks to Winnetka Heights resident Melody Townsel for letting us know that Steve Leach, also known as the Half Price Books "Buy Guy", will be performing with The Lost Serenaders this Friday night, 7-8:30 p.m., at Paperbacks Plus on La Vista. The three singers (also Gabrielle West and Debbie Scally) and a guitar will be creating "close-harmony reconfigurations of old favorites from the ’20s to the ’60s."

The Serenaders are more than happy when the audience sings along, and they’re offering snacks and non-alcoholic beverages to woo a crowd.
