Peter Sagal, host of the popular and extremely funny NPR show “Wait, Wait…Don’t TPicture 10ell Me,” will headline a cadre of performers who explore the ups and downs of romance and love via verse in Chicago Poetry Center’s 3rd Annual “No Love for Love” Valentine’s Day show.

Hosted by Jonathan Messinger, the event also features performances by Rosie Forrest, Edward Thomas-Herrera, Robbie Q. Telfer, and filmmaker Steve Delahoyde. A pre-show VIP reception (tickets $150 each) with Peter Sagal will offer attendees the chance to meet Peter and mingle with others while enjoying drinks, hors d’oeuvres and a private book signing. It’s a pre-Valentine’s Day valentine to the myriad faces and foibles of love.
