A wonderful crowd came to the Harold Washington Public Library last night to listen to Dave Clark and me talk about Route 66– and to share their own memories of the old road. It was an altogether wonderful event. Presentations in Route 66 towns always are – I think places that grew up on 66 just feel different. And being on the same program as Dave Clark was a total treat. He took the audience and me on a quick visual trip down our highway, from Grant Park to the Santa Monica Pier, and then talked about where 66 is and isn’t in the Windy City.
Tonight promises to be another fun evening: I’ll be talking about the road out at the Fountaindale Public Library in Bollingbrook. So if you live in the area, do drop by. 7 p.m.
See you there!
