We are closed today to spend time with our loved ones and read life-changing books, like this advanced copy of Megan Stielstra's essay collection THE WRONG WAY TO SAVE YOUR LIFE, pub date: August 1st, 2017. We will reopen tomorrow, Tuesday, May 30 at 11 am.
Congrats to our co-owners Lynn & Sarah as well as our bookseller H. Melt for making this year's Lit 50! It was also wonderful to see so many of our fellow indie bookstores and our new literary series, The Conversation, get some love! #Lit50 #mychicagobookstore
The May edition of our literary series, The Conversation, took on the question: Who Owns the Environment? Panelists Antonio Lopez, Jennifer Haigh, and Eiren Caffall moderated by Zoe Zolbrod discussed the tensions between climate justice and environmental justice, the seduction of toxic nostalgia, and so many other layered issues.
