Author Michael Hainey’s New York Times best-seller After Visiting Friends: A Son’s Story will be fêted by Darren Henault and Michael Bassett at their home with cocktails and nibbly food. The book explores the mysterious death of Mr. Hainey’s father, who was found alone and dead in his car at age 35 from an apparent heart attack on Chicago’s North Side (The Observer profiled Mr. Hainey and his book in February). Although the book’s subject matter is a bit of a downer, the party will be a stylish one: Mr. Hennault is a world-famous interior designer known for creating super-luxurious living spaces.
