Author and journalist Roger Thurow will be joining us at the North Side Library to discuss the importance of nutrition in early childhood. Thurow is a senior fellow on global food and agriculture for the Chicago Council on Global Affairs. His book, The First 1,000 Days: A Crucial Time for Mothers and Children - And the World, tells the true story of four new mothers across the globe and the challenges they face in providing their young children proper nutrition.
Delve into the topic of movable books with former Library Director, Elaine Estes. She will present fascinating facts about these books – also known as paper engineers’ sculptures – from a book collector’s point of view. Elaine will exhibit some of the hundreds of books in her private collection.
The program is free and open to all: readers, book collectors, book dealers and those just curious about these special and unique books.
