Documentary Night @ the Library
Join us for a ‘historical’ movie night at the library! In advance of a visit from documentarian Craig Dudnik – and just in time for Black History Month – we’ll be showing ‘Alice’s Ordinary People.’ This documentary follows the life and career of activist Alice Tregay and her Ordinary People, boots-on-the-ground civil rights activists of the Chicago Freedom Movement. No registration is necessary, and the library will provide popcorn and other refreshments! Stop in on Thursday, February 2 at 6:00 pm; we hope to see you there!
Digital Historian Visit
Thanks to the power of online conference programs, we’re able to bring in speakers from farther afield! This month we’ll videocall with documentarian Craig Dudnik, who created ‘Alice’s Ordinary People,’ the documentary we showed earlier in the month. Are you interested in history? Want to learn a bit more for Black History Month? No problem! We have what you’re looking for here at the SPL. This program is free to attend, but we highly suggest pre-registering so we know how many seats to save. We hope to see you there on Tuesday, February 14 at 5:30 pm!
Toastbusters: Dessert Time!
Want to learn to cook something new? Or is baking more your… jam? Then join the Toastbusters Cookbook Club, a potluck-style cookbook club where attendees all read the selected cookbook, try out a recipe or two, and bring the results to share with the club during a night of good food and good company! So join us on Wednesday, February 15 at 6:00 pm. Please register ahead of time, as copies of the cookbook, What’s for Dessert? by Claire Saffitz, are limited!
