Metropolis Performing Arts Centre will host a lecture with author Jesse Kellerman in a new series, From Page to Stage, in conjunction with Arlington Heights Memorial Library on Tuesday, Sept. 11.

Metropolis is partnering with Arlington Heights Memorial Library to present an evening with Jesse Kellerman, the author of five novels: "The Executor," "The Genius," "Trouble," "Sunstroke" and his latest, "Potboiler." Join Metropolis and the library as Kellerman talks about his latest psychological thriller and about his writing. A book signing and sale will follow his presentation.

In "Potboiler," middle-aged college professor Arthur Pfefferkorn re-connects with the widow of his oldest friend, best-selling thriller writer William de Vallée, who is lost at sea. Pfefferkorn is torn between envy and grief, for de Vallée not only outshone him professionally, but married the woman he also loved. His decision plunges him into a shadowy realm of double crosses and intrigue.

From Page to Stage with Jesse Kellerman will be at Metropolis at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 11. Tickets are free and can be reserved by calling the library at (847) 392-0100, visiting the library Reception Desk, 500 N. Dunton Ave., Arlington Heights, or online at

Metropolis is located in the heart of Chicago's Northwest suburbs in downtown Arlington Heights at the intersection of Campbell and Vail Ave., (111 W. Campbell St.). Street parking is available. Free parking is available in the public garage behind the theater.

Metropolis thanks its media partners Daily Herald and Pioneer Press.
