Register here to join JCUA for a series of book discussions on the Battle of Lincoln Park by Daniel Kay Hertz! This is an opportunity to learn together about the history of gentrification and activism in our Chicago neighborhoods, and talk about the implications for the political work we do now.

Suggestions for where to find the book are in the registration form. If you don’t have time to read the book in the next few weeks but still would like to learn with us, listening to Daniel Hertz’s interview on Episode 44 of The Lit Review Podcast would be good background for our discussions.
