Library day.

Amazing #owl gargoyles watching over the #chicagopubliclibrary. Would like one for my house.

The hungry book return at the Chicago Public Library's Humboldt Park branch. #ChicagoPublicLibrary #Humboldt #hungry #bookreturn

The postmodern Harold Washington Library designed by Hammond, Beeby & Babka features owls—not gargoyles‚ at the corners and peaks of the metal cornice surrounding the roof. It wasn’t until 2 years after the building’s completion that the owls were installed. #CBGWonderland #Chicago #landmarks #HaroldWashingtonLibrary #ChicagoPublicLibrary

On the 5th day of Christmas, I’m thankful for teachers who give it all. Having a husband who is a teacher, I see the long hours he puts in, including weekends. They have one of the most important jobs of all, to shape the minds of our youth because they are our future. Summers “off” usually entails working on the next years curriculum, tweaking what they have & reflecting on what didn’t work. Thank you to teachers everywhere, for your perseverance w/students who struggle, your commitment to education, your guiding hand in our young ones future & your long hours with minimal pay. #goodreads #mustread #publishing #mswl #mglitchat #yalitchat #teachersfollowteachers #amwriting #amwritingfantasy #education #library #bookstagramfeature #chicagopubliclibrary #literaryagent #scbwi #emergingauthors #WLCAuthor #bookbub #andersonsbookstore #bibliophile #storytelling #SFFpit #bookfeaturepages #teacher #payitforward

The legendary @mavisstaples, in conversation with @gregkot03 about his biography, "I'll Take You There: Mavis Staples, the Staple Singers, and the Music That Shaped the Civil Rights Era." Such an amazing storyteller... She talked about growing up on the south side of Chicago; epic backyard 4th of July BBQs with the likes of Ray Charles, Mahalia Jackson, and Curtis Mayfield; performing at small churches in the South; run-ins with racism; accidentally desegregating a southern laundromat; the family's friendship with #MartinLutherKingJr; her relationship with #BobDylan and the folk music scene; her new album with #JeffTweedy; and the current state of the world.
The book was the 2017 selection for #ChicagoPublicLibrary's #OneBookOneChicago series.

Tonight this beautiful soul touched my cheek and told me she loved my dimples and they meant I was “touched by the angels.” I may never recover from my heart exploding. (She is obviously sent from heaven herself, which explains the weird, celestial lighting that happened during this photo.)

A Taste of Power: A Black Woman's Story
by Elaine Brown
#ChicagoPublicLibrary

On the third day Christmas I was reminded of a friend: Yoli Alvin lost her daughter, Alyssa, to cancer about four years ago. She chose to take the grief and turn it into something positive and started up the Alyssa Alvin Foundation for Hope. This foundstion supports children battling cancer and other life-threatening illnesses through use of the arts. Alyssa was an accomplished musician, a talented artist and a beautiful person who shared her gifts of the arts with others. Even though Alyssa lost her battle to cancer years ago, her spirit lives on through her mothers work with this foundation. If you swipe through, you’ll see a picture of Alyssa. Her strength& courage through her battle with cancer proved her to be a warrior of all warriors. I’m thankful for the opportunity to support this foundation and support children who are fighting the same battles Alyssa did. #goodreads #mustread #publishing #mswl #mglitchat #yalitchat #teachersfollowteachers #amwriting #amwritingfantasy #education #library #bookstagramfeature #chicagopubliclibrary #literaryagent #scbwi #emergingauthors #WLCAuthor #bookbub #andersonsbookstore #bibliophile #storytelling #screenplays #SFFpit #bookfeaturepage #payitforward #jimmykimmel

The line between destiny & choice becomes blurred when a fathers desperate act of selflessness to protect his family from an evil after him and the final gift ultimately sets the course for his newborn son's future. The price paid for their safety may have been more than he bargained for. The Wish can be purchased @barnesandnoble @amazonprime or anywhere books are sold. It makes s great gift and you can feel good knowing that you’re giving back with your purchase b/c 100% of all proceeds I earn in book sales for 2017 will be donated to AAFH, an organization that supports children battling cancer and other life threatening illnesses. #goodreads #mustread #publishing #mswl #mglitchat #yalitchat #teachersfollowteachers #amwriting #amwritingfantasy #education #library #bookstagramfeature #chicagopubliclibrary #literaryagent #scbwi #emergingauthors #WLCAuthor #bookbub #andersonsbookstore #bibliophile #storytelling #screenplays #SFFpit #bookfeaturepage

New read for the holidays, and to celebrate that it only took me two months to get my booty over to the library for a library card. •

On the 2nd day of Christmas, I’m sharing a special man: check out Howling Wolf Productions studio. This amazing producer reminds us all to look past the disabilities of those who are LD and see their ABILITIES!

The Founder's Mentality: How to Overcome the Predictable Crises of Growth. By @zookchris

Thanks to our dedicated partner @BMOHarrisBank for inviting our @YOUmediaChicago teens to enjoy @HamiltonMusical as a kickoff to the Illinois Bicentennial Celebration.

This novel has been burning up the"Best of 2016" lists, and for good reason. It's an unbelievable exploration of abandonment, adaptation, and adoption. The two protagonists are just so fully human; you feel sad for the choices they make, but you also truly understand them.

This book also shows "illegal" border crossing not as a crime, but as a fact of human existence. This book is about Chinese-Americans, but anyone who opposes DACA should read this stunning debut work.

Day 7 of the #decemberphotochallenge: #Kindness
It’s actually kind of hard to find something to fit this prompt (I know I made this up and have no one to blame except myself, though. D’oh! 😆). But I noticed this sign in the window of the #bezazianbranch of the #chicagopubliclibrary - inspired by one of my favorite middle-grade reads, #Wonder. So here it is. #choosekind #promotekindness #rjpalacio #libraries #librarygram

We’re excited to be performing at the Sulzer @chicagopubliclibrary tonight! We’ll have a mix of Holiday songs as well as traditional Latino favorites! 🎶 📚

Hey everyone, you know I always take some time to read a great book. December book is: Blessed In The Darkness by @joelosteen . Enjoy and have an amazing day!!! #LetsReadTogetherWtihHeavona #ChicagoPublicLibrary

I am not a person who thinks much about food beyond consuming it. I am certainly not a person who habitually thinks about food through the lens of imperialism, race, and genetics. @thecookinggene changed that.

The entire American culinary experience was defined by slavery. After all, spices and the chefs who knew how to cook with them were often cargo on the same ship. This book reclaims that narrative through culinary history. Part autobiography, part historical guidebook, and part cookbook (there are recipes scattered throughout), Michael W. Twitty has written something wholly original, and deeply exceptional. (S/O to @andarooguhutzamer who I think would go bananas over this book)

I got my ‘a’ print framed! #chicagopubliclibrary 1966 #spotthebirdabove

I did it, I visited EVERY currently open branch of the Chicago Public Library in 2017! Finishing with a quick stop (after a long CTA trip) to the Hegewisch branch yesterday. This was 77 @chicagopubliclibrary locations of 80 (Woodson is closed a while for repairs, Independence branch right near me is indefinitely closed/awaiting rebuild after fire damage, and I was a day late to Thurgood Marshall branch which is temporarily closed for repair.) I first did this project in 2005 and hadn't done it since, though I'd been to most branches once or more in the intervening years... If I'd gotten an earlier start I could have read a book from every branch too. I am reading a book from every Central District (about 1600 N-5500 S) branch this year; last year it was every North branch. I don't have good photos of all the branches but I've shared some favorite shots on here. #chicago #southside #southeastside #farsoutheastside #hegewisch #libraries #chicagopubliclibrary #architecturalinteriors

Exterior, entrance, and view from upper level on a quick visit to the handsome Pullman branch of Chicago Public Library on Monday. I don't think I'd been in it since 2005. A little east of Michigan Ave. where Roseland becomes Pullman.

Jaume Plensa - 2 of 5

Jaume Plensa is perhaps most well known in the United States for his interactive contribution to Chicago’s Millennium Park—the famed Crown Fountain (2004). A highly ambitious and playful multi-media installation, Crown Fountain features two 50-foot-high glass brick towers facing each other at opposite ends of a shallow pool of water. The LED-powered monoliths function as video screens showing moving-image portraits of 1,000 Chicago residents, each of whom purses his or her lips and spouts a stream of water onto the plaza. Rotating every few minutes, the portraits speak to the diversity of the city while also reflecting on our fundamental commonalities as expressed through the body.
Plensa has stated that his vision for Crown Fountain was to “create a place where people could meet and share dreams. And I probably could not find a better landscape for that to happen than the human body." This reflects the artist’s larger approach to figuration, which he sees as a way to break through cultural, linguistic, and geographic barriers that separate and divide.
