Join me for lunch with Donna Brazile!

It's time for the annual Women Employed Working Lunch! And this year Donna Brazile is the keynote speakr. AND...I'm on the host committee.

Event Details:When: Thursday, May 19, 2011
Where: Fairmont Chicago Millennium Park
200 N. Columbus Drive, Chicago

Networking Reception: 11:00 a.m. - Noon
Luncheon & Program: Noon - 1:30 p.m.

I've attended one lunch and it was a great time.Which is one reason why I agreed to be on the host committee this year. It's a great event to catch up with some of the fab women of Chicago whom I only see at events like this, but also a great way to meet NEW fab friends. It is a bit pricey ($125) but the money goes to an amazing organization that works on issues around women in the workplace and getting women the training they need to move into better paying jobs. They don't focus on just issues about white collar work, but also issues that working class women are fighting for like paid sick days.

And since I'm on the host committee, I do have a goal for selling tickets. If you do purchase one, please let me know so I can get credit! Plus so I can look for you on the 19th.

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
