Bye-Bye Summer Picnic

Saturday, September 21, 2019
2-7 p.m.

Gwendolyn Brooks Park
4532 S. Greenwood Ave.
Chicago, IL 60653

On the cusp of the September equinox, we will gather for a proper send off to another summer—in literary style. This is an informal gathering—bring your own blankets, grills, food, etc.; I know there will be a lot of sharing and swapping, but mostly count on coming with your own supplies. Summer is a widely explored topic, with mountains of pages devoted to its end. We encourage people, young and old, to bring thematically-fitting excerpts to read—your own or those of your favorite Chicago writers. We'll gather for a short time on the Gwendolyn Brooks porch to share our excerpts. Families welcome. We have no alternative rain plan; just hoping for the weather to cooperate.
