Read some great books this year. The ones below are some of my favorites that I got to cross paths with, and if there’s a star next to it… I recommend getting your own copy and settling in as soon as possible.

It took me years and years to get around to reading this book, but it seems now is the perfect time.

Florida, Lauren Groff

There There, Tommy Orange

Boss: Richard J. Daley of Chicago, Mike Royko

*The Great Believers, Rebecca Makkai

Go Ahead in the Rain: Notes to a Tribe Called Quest, Hanif Abdurraqib

*They Can’t Kill Us Until They Kill Us, Hanif Abdurraqib

*39 Microlectures, Matthew Goulish

Once More We Saw Stars, Jayson Greene

The Coast of Chicago, Stuart Dybek

The Warmth of Other Suns, Isabel Wilkerson

Wilderness Tips, Margaret Atwood

*Goodbye to a River, John Graves

Also got to experience a ton of incredible performances, in Chicago and further afield. Made a little list for the Dance Center blog and got some friends and colleagues to share their thoughts as well.
