There’s sure to be a line out the door for Jane Lynch’s upcoming appearance in our neighborhood. She’s stopping by to sign copies of her new book “Happy Accidents” at 6 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 29 at Barnes & Noble in Lincoln Park.

Lynch has played strong and hilarious female characters in hit comedies like “40 Year Old Virgin” and “A Mighty Wind”. Now, she’s known for her role as Sue Sylvester on the hit TV show “Glee”.

Her comedic memoir chronicles her success from being plucked from a Frosted Flakes commercial by director Christopher Guest to becoming an Emmy award nominee.

You can only receive tickets for the event by showing her Barnes & Nobel receipt for “Happy Accidents”. Tickets will be distributed starting at 9 a.m. Saturday.
