Sixth stop on my “Jane Addams Day” roadshow: members of AAUW-Illinois’ Batavia/Geneva/St Charles Branch were able to retrieve the VHS tape from their recalcitrant VCR & send it to me overnight so that I could show DINNER AT JANE’S to members of the Wheaton/Glen Ellyn Branch as scheduled.
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).
Thanks much to Program VP Marilyn Mayer Wiedermann for her eloquent introduction as well as all her insightful comments (based on her own reading). Thanks too for the terrific dinner at FIGO’s (Glen Ellyn’s gourmet Italian restaurant). Photo on the far right shows “Glen Ellyn Jane” with Marilyn (right) & Past-President Suzanne Balk (left).
