On this episode of the Deerfield Public Library Podcast, we’re featuring presenters from two of our most popular recent Library programs!
First up is Molly Page, author of 100 Things to Do in Chicago Before You Die. She fills us in on some of her favorite things to do in the city, including some hidden secrets. Molly’s enthusiasm for Chicagoland is super contagious. We know you’ll get some great ideas for your next family outing or solo exploring trip. And you can check out Molly’s book here at the Library!
Then we hear from Masala Sapphire, a Chicago-based drag queen who presented at our hugely popular program Drag Queen Story Hour last week. Masala tells us what drag means to her and what it was like to read picture books and perform for a unique Library audience.
Drag Queen Story Hour is a nationally recognized event that gives kids (and everyone!) a space to be themselves and provides them with glamorous, positive queer role models. All the books read are on our Youth Department’s “Be Who You Are!” book list. You can check them out below:
- A Color of His Own by Leo Lionni
- Julian is a Mermaid by Jessica Love
- Families, Families, Families by Suzanne Lang
We hope you enjoy our 25th episode! Each month we release an episode featuring a conversation with a dynamic guest with a Deerfield connection—or a library program presenter! Learn more about the podcast on our podcast page.
