One Book, One Chicago Selection Announced

The Chicago Public Library has announced the Spring 2007 selection for One Book, One Chicago: James Baldwin's Go Tell It On the Mountain. The story spans a single day in the life of fourteen-year-old John Grimes and has been hailed as a masterpiece for its exploration into the black migration from the South to the North. As always, the CPL will host a plethora of events focusing on the book, from a spoken word and song performance to film screenings to neighborhood book club discussions. You can keep checking the CPL's calendar of events for updates, but Slowdown over on the main page will also have you covered with events being posted as they're announced.
