Please join us for a discussion of The Yiddish Policemen's Union by Michael Chabon led by Debbie Walsh:
Please note that the discussion is at a university library, which is different for us, so Debbie provided the following information about the location and parking:
The National University of Health Sciences campus is located at the intersection of Roosevelt Road (RT 38) and Highland Avenue in Lombard. If you are heading north on Highland, it is a “T” intersection where Highland “ends” but if you drive through the light you will enter the campus. The LRC (Library) is Building C on campus and if you enter at the Highland Avenue entrance you pass two left hand turns and the third left turn is the one folks want to take to get closest to the library (Building C) At that point, you are looking at the back of our building. Since we will be closed on May 3 parking shouldn’t be a problem, and folks may feel free to park anywhere they see a space. When students aren’t here, we have great parking. Folks will need to walk around to the front of the building and I will make sure the doors are opened and there are staff members standing by to let them in.
Debbie also provided this map to help you.
Finally, because this is the first time we are meeting at an academic library, Debbie is offering tours of the LRC both before and after the discussion [at 1pm and 4:15 pm]. If you are interested in a tour, please include that information in your RSVP email to Debbie so she can schedule accordingly. You may also give her a call at (630) 889-6610 with further questions.
ARRT would like to thank Debbie for giving our members this opportunity to visit and tour her library. It is definitely a "bonus."
Please arrange to obtain your own copy of the book for the discussion
As always, discussion of the book includes a nuts-and-bolts session devoted to sharing practical solutions to the problems and concerns of book discussion leaders.
The Leadership Topic, led by Bill Stephens, will be about how to both recruit new members and retain old ones. Please come ready to share your successes and failures in this area so we can all help each other. Also, remember that you can always bring any problems or concerns you have with your group, no matter the topic, so we can all help each other.
