The Dress Lodger by Sheri Holman

City of Scoundrels: The 12 Days of Disaster That Gave Birth to Modern Chicago by Gary Krist

In 1919, Chicago was called “the youngest great city in the world.” In mid-July everything went terribly wrong; a deadly dirigible crash, a child murder, race riots, and a public transit strike. This is a true story of mayhem, murder, and political corruption.

 

Cookbook Club

This program is so much fun we’ve decided to do it every month! In March we’ll explore the food of the Persian empire. April’s book features a remarkable fusion of Southern and South Indian dishes. Finally, in May, we’ll cook delectable recipes from Shanghai and the surrounding region. Pick out your recipe at the Reference Desk by June 8/July 12/August 9.
