Despres Lectures Series Opens January 28th

This season we look at what inspires writers to write. Not really asking why someone became a writer but with an interest in how they met their characters, what brought them to a certain topic or place or thing. We’ll be joined by some old friends as well as some new ones.

Rachel DeWoskin is our first guest. She is the author of Big Girl Small and Foreign Babies in Beijing. She will be joined by James Kesteloot who served as the inspiration for one of the characters in her new book Blind. (You’ll have to read the book to figure out which one!) Kesteloot is a former executive with the Chicago Lighthouse for the Blind and a member of President Obama’s Committee on employment opportunities for the blind or the severely disabled.

We look forward to a fabulous evening!

“On Sight and Insight” begins at 6:30 pm at Blackstone Library, 4904 S. Lake Park Ave on Wednesday, January 28.
