Since 2001, One Book, One Chicago has engaged residents and fostered a sense of community through reading two annually selected books and related events.
DePaul’s Dr. Francesca Royster and Dr. Amor Kohli join Ayana Contreras from Vocalo Radio to discuss selections from Mavis Staples’ vibrant catalog along with other songs of resistance and protest.
January 17 at 6 PM
DPU Professor and Editor of the journal Slag Glass City Barrie Jean Borich invites all to a panel that brings together members of multiple departments for a conversation about Making in Chicago. The event will explore the question of creating in our city as readers across Chicago dig into this year’s One Book, One Chicago selection – Thomas Dyja’s The Third Coast: When Chicago Built the American Dream.
The panel will take place Monday, February 22nd, 2016 from 6-8pm at the DePaul Art Museum.
On November 5th, the Department of English is hosting two events with Thomas Dyja, author of the 2015/2016 One Book, One Chicago selection The Third Coast: When Chicago Built the American Dream.
At 4:30, Dyja will be meeting informally for a Q&A with DePaul Creative Writing students. At present, the discussion is scheduled to take place in the 2nd floor student lounge/resource room, though it will be moved to a larger venue depending on interest. If you are a creative writing student and would like to attend the discussion, contact Literacy Outreach Coordinator David Welch at dwelch3 (at) depaul.edu.
Then, at 6:00, Dyja will be reading in Richardson 115. (see flyer below)
We hope to see you at one or both events!
