Local author Krista August tells the story of the Lincoln Park monuments
Chicagoan Krista August has published the second edition of "Giants in the Park." This illustrated guidebook was the Chicago Writer's Association Book of the Year, and earned a Certificate of Excellence in 2014 from the Illinois State Historical Society. The volume is unique as a guide to the portrait statues found in Lincoln Park, because it includes Krista's beautiful illustrations in addition to the history of each work, including the Emanuel Swedenborg monument near Diversey and Lake Shore Dr. (Note that Emanuel's first name is misspelled on the monument pedestal.) Copies are available on view in the Swedenborg Library, or acquire your own by visiting Giants in the Park

  The group will meet on Wednesday, December 6, 2017 from 2-3:30 pm in the Swedenborg Library, to discuss the practical tips for using intuition, along with our personal stories involving intuition. Due to the subjective nature of this topic, we will employ the 5-minute hourglass method of sharing the floor to ensure that all have an opportunity to share. Join us!
