Susan O’Halloran ~ “Who Gets to Call This Home?”
February 26 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm| FREE
#FreeEvent Sue O’Halloran’s stories take us on a journey from her front porch on the southside of Chicago to the wider world of international refugee crises and big city racial politics. Through humorous, touching and thought-provoking original stories, Sue will lead us to celebrate our less than perfect families, our own uncertain attempts to make a difference and moments from our country’s history of which we can be proud and about which we so rarely hear.
