Harley J. Spiller 

When discussing his collection of Chinese restaurant menus, Harley J. Spiller (a.k.a., Inspector Collector), commented that by amassing a collection of something no one cares about, it suddenly becomes interesting. In his new book, Keep the Change: A Collector's Tales of Lucky Pennies, Counterfeit C-Notes, and Other Curious Currency, Spiller focuses on money -- something that fascinates just about everyone. But what makes his book so fascinating are the offbeat facts and anecdotes. Did you know U.S. dollars are magnetic? Inspector Collector tells you why -- and why it matters. Subterranean Books welcomes the author for a reading and signing at 11 a.m. Sunday under the French light fixtures of Herbie's Vintage 72 (405 North Euclid Avenue; 314-862-6100 or www.subbooks.com). Admission is free, and copies of Keep the Change will be sold onsite.
