Go Cubs Go

Baseball season is just around the corner, and once the Cubs start playing I am ready to get into summer mode. Sure, we might still be wavering between winter and spring right now, but call me an optimist. Baseball means sunny days, enjoying a beer and a hot dog in the Friendly Confines. I'm sure I'm not alone in looking forward to those days.

CHICAGO WOMEN

Join us on Wednesday March 7, 2018 for a fascinating program about some of the amazing women of Chicago’s past and present. While you’re waiting, check out these books. Not all of these women will be profiled in the program, but they're all inspiring and have links to Chicago. Come to the Information desk for more suggestions to keep you reading during Women’s History Month, and register for Hell Hath No Fury: The Wild, Wicked, and Wonderful Women of the Windy City to learn more about these incredible women.

Happy reading!

Artists We Love: Jason Isbell

Since Valentine’s Day is coming, I wanted to highlight an artist who has written some of my favorite love songs of late.  Jason Isbell is a singer songwriter with a folky-country bent, think Townes Van Zandt, Ryan Adams, or Patterson Hood (of Isbell’s former band Drive-By-Truckers).  He frequently collaborates with his wife, violinist and fellow singer-songwriter, Amanda Shires, who is the inspiration for many of his most romantic songs.
