On March 10, 2016 | 0 Comments

As a child I remember visiting the Chicago public library (the one with the two big lions…a huge sign for me). My parents would take the four of us on the weekend…occasionally my father would take the girls solo, perhaps to give my mother a much needed break. I was in awe at the number […]

On October 13, 2015 | 2 Comments
