About

Hi, I’m Lyndsey!

The October Sort is a field guide to life in the City of the Big Shoulders. Here you’ll find a little bit of everything I love—from food and drink, to music, movies, books, and of course, my beloved, adopted city, Chicago.

The name, by the way, is adapted from a line in Nelson Algren’s lyrical essay, Chicago: City on the Make, which should be required reading for any Chicagoan — “Chicago is an October sort of city, even in spring.”
