A classic Chicago novel will have plenty of new readers later this year.

"The Adventures of Augie March" by Saul Bellow has been chosen for the "One Book, One Chicago" program.

The program began ten years ago, inviting Chicagoans to read the same book at the same time.

Bellow's book centers on the life and times of a young man growing up in Chicago during the Great Depression.
