  • 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm Illinois Libraries Present: Caitlin Doughty

    Join us for a conversation with Caitlin Doughty, mortician, bestselling author, and advocate for death acceptance. Hailed by The New York Times as a relentlessly curious and chipper tour guide to the underworld,” she’ll discuss reform of Western funeral industry practices and much more with Mark Bazer (The Interview Show).

    Register for the Zoom link at https://bit.ly/ILP_CaitlinDoughty or come to the library for a watch party.

    Caitlin Doughty is a mortician, advocate, and bête noire of the traditional funeral industry. Her educational webseries Ask a Mortician has been viewed almost 250 million times, and her three books were New York Times bestsellers: Smoke Gets in Your Eyes, From Here to Eternity, and Will My Cat Eat My Eyeballs? She founded a Los Angeles funeral home as well as the funeral reform collective The Order of the Good Death, which spawned the death positive movement.

    Mark Bazer is host and creator of “The Interview Show,” a talk show in a bar. Aired on Chicago’s PBS station, WTTW, and filmed at The Hideout, it features conversations as substantive as they are entertaining.

    This event is made possible by Illinois Libraries Present, a statewide collaboration among public libraries offering premier events. ILP is funded in part by a grant awarded by the Illinois State Library, a department of the Office of Secretary of State, using funds provided by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services, under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA). ILP is committed to inclusion and accessibility. To request accommodations, please email illinoislibrariespresent@gmail.com.

    Rated PG-13. Popcorn served; feel free to bring your own snack or sack lunch. Let us know you’re coming at https://engagedpatrons.org/EventsRegister.cfm?SiteID=2335&EventID=477555.

    Nobleman, military man, and poet Cyrano de Bergerac is secretly in love with Roxanne. However, his insecurity over his dwarf stature prevents him from professing his love, especially when Roxanne confesses that she’s interested in Christian, a recruit. Elated that Roxanne would like a guy like him, Christian feels anxious about speaking to her. Cyrano agrees to ghostwrite love letters for him. A new musical re-imagining of the timeless tale of a heartbreaking love triangle.

  • 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm Midwest Baking with Shauna Sever

    Join Shauna Sever, cookbook author, TV and radio contributor, and daughter of the great Midwest, for this special Illinois Libraries Present holiday season event. Shauna will share her love of food, baking, and some tips to make your holiday gatherings delicious.

    Register for the Zoom link at https://bit.ly/ShaunaSever, or come to the library for a watch party, complete with a treat or two from Midwest Made!

    As a writer, Shauna’s work is best defined by her baking-centric cookbooks. Her fourth, Midwest Made: Big, Bold Baking from the Heartland, was named a Best Baking Cookbooks of 2019 by The New York Times. She has also contributed food stories and recipes for The Wall Street Journal, Food52, Bon Appetit, The Kitchn, Real Simple, Midwest Living, Food and Wine, O Magazine, and many more. Though her career began in broadcast journalism, and she now talks about pie instead of Hollywood, she uses the same skill set for her regular television appearances on TODAY Show and Food Network. After 12 years of California living, Shauna and her family returned to Chicago, where she now bakes, writes and is always on the hunt for great old-school Midwestern bakeries.

    This event is made possible by Illinois Libraries Present, a statewide collaboration among public libraries offering premier events. ILP is funded in part by a grant awarded by the Illinois State Library, a department of the Office of Secretary of State, using funds provided by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services, under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA). ILP is committed to inclusion and accessibility. To request accommodations, please email illinoislibrariespresent@gmail.com.

  • 10:00 am – 11:00 am PAWS to Read

     For kids who love dogs and love to read! Established in 2005 by the Peoria Humane Society, the Paws to Read program helps children develop their literacy skills by reading to specially trained therapy dogs. The children have fun petting a furry friend while improving their reading skills and boosting their self-esteem.

    10 – 10:15 am: meet the dogs;
    10:15 am – 11 am: read to the dogs


    Dog and cat food donations are appreciated, but not required.

    Walk-ins are accepted, but your advance registration will help us know how many volunteers we will need and will guarantee your opportunity to read to a dog. Click the link to register: bit.ly/3uX9G4w or call: 309-274-2719
