DGPL seats for this event are at capacity; however, this event is presented as part of a library consortium; all of the libraries involved have the same access. The following libraries have registration space open, and we are trying to fill other libraries' seats first, so you can cancel your DGPL reservation and re-register at one of the following libraries:

St. Charles Public Library: http://scpld.libnet.info/event/4921121

Normal Public Library: https://www.normalpl.org/kotlowitz

Mr. Kotlowitz is known for There Are No Children Here, An American Summer: Love and Death in Chicago, and an Emmy-winning documentary The Interrupters.  Our fireside chat will be moderated by Pulitzer Prize winning Chicago Tribune columnist Mary Schmich. Alex and Mary will have a forty-five minute wide-ranging discussion followed by about fifteen minutes to answer your questions.

  • Registration limited to DGPL cardholders. Registration may open to non-cardholders one week before the event.
  • You may submit up to two questions for Mr. Kotlowitz; there will be a space to add them during registration.
  • Questions must be received no later than April 28.
  • Space is limited. If you register and can no longer attend, please cancel your registration to allow for other attendees.
  • If you will be watching together via the same screen, you only need to register one person.
