Title of Event: Dr. Susan Wicklund - This Common Secret: My Journey as an Abortion Doctor

This Common Secret chronicles Dr. Susan Wicklund’s emotional, dramatic twenty-year career on the front lines of the abortion war. Since its legalization 35 years ago, many young Americans have never known a time when abortion wasn’t safe and accessible. Today, women’s advocates are concerned that we could lose that right over the next few years, through a stacked Supreme Court and eleventh-hour wrangling by the anti-choice Bush administration. This Common Secret reveals that for many women throughout America, the right to safe, legal abortion is already an impossibility. As we enter another era with a fevered political fight over abortion, this raw and powerful memoir shows us what is at stake. A representative from the Chicago Abortion Fund (our Organization of the Month) will also be on hand to talk about their work making safe abortion accessible to low-income women.

Read an essay by Dr. Wicklund at Powells.com (but hey, don't buy it there just cause it's on sale! You want to give to CAF remember? And hey, get an autographed copy at W&CF.) to build up to the event!

I am keeping this post at the top so y'all remember to shop at WCF this month! :)

Frederick, A Virtual Puppet Performance - Read by Michael Shannon

WOW...this is my first post during the Coronavirus pandemic! I hope you and your loved ones are healthy and safe. Thanks to the Chicago Children’s Theatre, the city’s largest professional theater devoted exclusively to children and families, for launching a new YouTube channel, CCTv: Virtual Theatre and Learning from Chicago Children’s Theatre. To kick if off we are treated to Frederick. Here's hoping this helps with your little ones. Or is a comfort to everyone of all ages. Chicago Children’s Theatre’s all-new virtual puppet performance was created while all of the artists were sheltering in place, working with resources limited to what they had in their homes or on their laptops. Frederick is directed by CCT Co-Founder and Artistic Director Jacqueline Russell. Puppets and sets were designed, built and puppeteered in a home studio by Grace Needlman and Will Bishop, CCT’s Director of Production, the creative team behind CCT’s annual series of Beatrix Potter puppet show

Book Review: Wolfpack by Abby Wambach

Less than a year ago, Abby Wambach took the stage at Barnard's commencement and gave a speech that shook many, including myself, to the core . Her speech went viral and I made the above image in order to share the highlights of her speech. Earlier this month Abby released the speech in book form. Wolfpack : How to Come Together, Unleash Our Power, and Change the Game is short (less than 100 pages) but is much more than just her speech . You get a peek into how the speech came together and why she said everything. And because the book is short and is an expanded speech, it moves quickly. I feel that it moves with the same ferocity that Abby use to move down a soccer field. And you might find yourself cheering as she takes you through the story. Abby has always been one of my favorite players. The way she ran amok on the pitch was exactly the way I felt I played sports. Never caring how you looked and giving it your all. Leaving it all on the field. When she retired from socc
