Battle of Lincoln Park Book Club Part 1

March 7, 2021 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Becca Lubow

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.

We’ll discuss the first part of the book, Part 1: The Invention of Old Town, on Sunday March 7 from 4-5 PM, and Part 2: The Conservation of Lincoln Park on Sunday March 21 from 1-2 PM. The series will end with a Q&A and book talk with Daniel Hertz sometime in April, date TBD.

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.
