Fifth stop on my “Jane Addams Day” roadshow: I was supposed to show DINNER AT JANE’S to members of AAUW-Illinois’ Batavia/Geneva/St Charles Branch, but even tho program coordinators had tested the equipment in advance, the VCR froze & we were unable to get it going. Not to worry, I am so “into Jane” at this point that I simply spoke off-the-cuff & answered questions about Jane Addams Day for the next hour. In fact, they had a hard time shutting me up!
As I do everywhere, I urged Branch members to let all their local libraries, schools & bookstores know that “Jane Addams Day” is imminent. Books for children, teenagers, & adults can be ordered from Women & Children First bookstore (AAUW-Illinois “official partner” for online orders).
For more information about DINNER AT JANE’S & all of AAUW-Illinois’ plans for Jane Addams Day celebrations statewide, visit the AAUW-Illinois website. The first annual Jane Addams Day in Illinois is 12/10/07.
