Book Launch. Join us!!
Wed., June 14, 2017, at 6:00 pm. Free and open to the public. Chicago’s Fabulous Fountains will get a fabulous book launch at the Harold Washington Library, 400 S. State St., Chicago. For more info, call 312-636-8968.
Get into the flow! Join us for this festive event. Invited speakers include WTTW Program Host Geoffrey Baer, who wrote the Foreword, Debra Shore, Commissioner, Metropolitan Water Reclamation District, who wrote the Preface, and Julia Thiel, who shot the beautiful photographs that bring Chicago’s outdoor public fountains to life. The program will include hundreds of fountain images and a few words from author Greg Borzo about why Chicago’s overlooked fountains should be discovered, appreciated and celebrated.
We’ll include a free raffle, including a $250 gift certificate from VBT Bicycling & Walking Vacations; “The Complete Tour Collection,” a boxed set of DVDs of Baer’s legendary Chicago tours ($240 value); a one-year membership to Divvy, Chicago’s great bike sharing program ($99 value); and other prizes.
A signed copy of “Chicago’s Fabulous Fountains” would make a great gift—to yourself and your friends.
