Book Release Party and Fundraising Event at ALA
EveryLibrary is excited to announce our book release party and fundraising event at ALA in Chicago in partnership with Black Dog & Leventhal
EveryLibrary is excited to announce our book release party and fundraising event at ALA in Chicago in partnership with Black Dog & Leventhal (an Imprint of Hachette Book Group) and Kyle Cassidy at the Old Crow Smokehouse, River North. This fun event will be held on Saturday June 24th in Chicago from 8pm-11pm. Please join us to celebrate the release of This Is What a Librarian Looks Like with the author/photographer Kyle Cassidy, many of our friends, and librarians from the book! This event will also help EveryLibrary raise money to fund our fight for libraries at the ballot box across the country.
Cassidy’s book is a celebration of librarians across the country. His subjects are men and women of all ages, backgrounds, and personal style-from pink hair and leather jackets to button-downs and blazers. In short, not necessarily what one thinks a librarian looks like. The nearly 220 librarians photographed also share their personal thoughts on what it means to be a librarian. This Is What a Librarian Looks Like also includes original essays by some of our most beloved writers, journalists, and commentators including Neil Gaiman, George R.R. Martin, Nancy Pearl, Cory Doctorow, Paula Poundstone, Amanda Palmer, Peter Sagal, Jeff VanderMeer, John Scalzi, Sara Farizan, Amy Dickinson, and others. Cassidy also profiles a handful of especially influential librarians and libraries.
This fun event will be held at Old Crow Smokehouse, River North and all tickets levels include beer, wine, and well drinks until our tab runs out as well as a DJ all night. Old Crow Smokehouse River North is located a block away from the Merchandise Mart and in the heart of downtown. The country venue can be described as the ultimate blend of home cookin and a lively saloon.
