Women and Children First Bookstore has always been a long standing favorite artist date for me since graduate school. It is also good that it is down the block from Andie’s Restaurant, one of my favorite restaurants in the entire city of Chicago.
Clark Street between Foster and Berwyn, has long been a hangout for me. And it also helps that I saw writer and quilter Mary Fons perform her one woman show Carol Burnett’s Daughter just down the street years ago!
The children’s section is one of the best I have ever seen. The author discussions and readings range from feminism to risk taking in fiction to the metaphysical. And men are always welcome as my former professor Michael Mc Colly was years ago when his memoir was released.
As usual, I had a great time.
