Adult Book Discussion: Electric Arches

February 21 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

For African American History Month we will be discussing Electric Arches by Chicago author Eve L. Ewing.

Electric Arches is an eclectic blend of poetry, prose, and visual art exploring black girlhood and womanhood through Ewing’s experiences growing up and living in Chicago. Some stories take place in Ewing’s past while others envision Chicago’s futurehood and span from more realistic to fantastical.

Dr. Eve L. Ewing is a sociologist and writer who is currently an assistant professor at the University of Chicago School of Social Service Administration. To learn more about Ewing and her work in Chicago, visit her website.

Copies of the book will be available for check out at the circulation desk.
