Gallery discussion at the Harold

The Harold Washington Library is giving us the run of the hallway for our second AND LAST “gallery discussion”  Wednesday, June 26 @ 6p. Our comics journalism exhibit ends its 5-month run July 28.

So stop by and say hello. Be prepared for a potential special guests (the people in those comics are real…), we’ll meet in the main hallway on the first floor, you can’t miss it. Drinks aren’t allowed in the library, so we can only suggest the pleasure of our company as motivation.

Their exhibit, including a WBEZ Curious City collaboration, is on display at the Harold Washington Library through August.
