Lake Forest Reads: Ragdale Lecture with Professor Carolyn Tuttle

1:30pm CDT October 13, 2014

Part of the city-wide reading program “Lake Forest Reads: Ragdale 2014,” listen to a presentation by Betty Jane Schultz Hollender Professor of Economics Carolyn Tuttle. 

The program is entitled “The U.S.-Mexican Border: Fancy Factories and Dilapidated Dwellings” Free and open to the public. Funded by Friends of Lake Forest Library.

Presented by the Lake Forest Library, this program encourages the Lake Forest community to read one book by a writer affiliated with Ragdale, the artists’ residency that has supported emerging and best-selling authors and their creative process for over 35 years. 

Based on the “One City, One Book” program, which takes place in over 70 communities nationwide, the program’s mission is to foster literacy, a culture of reading, and a sense of community. 

The 2014 selection is Into the Beautiful North (2009) by Chicago author Luis Alberto Urrea. This book was chosen after careful consideration by an advisory committee including representatives of the Lake Forest Library, Friends of Lake Forest Library, Lake Forest College, Dickinson Hall, Ragdale, and the wider community.
