Three Cups of Tea in the Military

Three Cups of Tea has been much sought after as a book club selection here in the United States, but who knew it had become “required reading” for senior leaders of our armed forces? The New York Times has an interesting article about the popularity of Greg Mortenson’s book among the American military community in Afghanistan and elsewhere.

Local Art @ EPL

Throughout the month of July EPL is pleased to present the work of Alice Dubois, the latest artist to be featured in our local artist exhibition series. Ms. Dubois’ colorful canvases draw inspiration from nature, literature, and music and combine various artistic styles into a striking, unique, and eerily beautiful whole. She lives and makes her art right here in Evanston, Illinois and has even been inspired by EPL’s family of peregrine falcons to make a brand new painting featured in her exhibit. You can see Ms. Dubois’ artwork throughout July on the 2nd Floor of the Evanston Public Library. And stay tuned to our Off the Shelf blog for an interview with the artist coming up later this month.
