Encountering Evanston History: A Panel Discussion

Join us for a fascinating conversation about Evanston history.

Several of the authors who wrote Encountering Evanston History, a newly released book that contains 75 fascinating stories about Evanston and its history, will be in conversation to discuss some of Evanston’s historical highlights.

Please join Katharine Ade, Anne Bodine, Ellen Galland, Mary Helt Gavin, Larry Gavin, Shawn Jones, Morris (“Dino”) Robinson, and Victoria Scott.

All of the authors are Evanstonians and have been actively engaged in the community. Many were reporters for the Evanston RoundTable newspaper and wrote extensively about the city, the schools, the arts and the many important issues facing the community. Some are noted local historians.

Copies of Encountering Evanston History will be available for purchase at the event, provided by Bookends & Beginnings Bookstore. You can also find a library book here. For more information about the book, visit https://www.evanstonbook.com/
