    Chicagoland book club: The Chicago Bookers
    One thing to know about your book club: Our book club evolved from a one-woman photography show by one of the founders. She asked if we might want to gather informally once a month to discuss books. Six original members led to our current 10 who have been meeting for 17 years. Sometimes we travel together to a city that relates to what we have just read. The image you see of us was taken on a trip to Springfield to the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum after reading “Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln” by Doris Kearns Goodwin. We have also traveled to: New York after reading “Remembering Mr. Shawn's New Yorker: The Invisible Art of Editing” by Ved Mehta where we met the author; an abbey in Iowa after “The Cloister Walk” by Kathleen Norris; Aspen, Colo., after “The Book of Illusions: A Novel” by Paul Auster; and Wisconsin after “The Flanders Panel” by Arturo Perez-Reverte.

    September 11, 2001 – too painful to remember, too horrible to forget
    I've long been a believer in the concept of cause and effect as it relates to shaping our lives. I first learned about it in an eighth grade U.S. history class and it's influenced my thinking, learning and writing since — probably the way I live...
