Baldacci, Black, Gilbert, and Soloway at Roosevelt U.
On April 28, 2006, The Division Street Princess and I joined 36 other authors and their books at Roosevelt University’s Alumni-Faculty Authors Forum. Prominent Chicagoans Leslie Baldacci, Inside Mrs. B.’s Classroom, Courage, Hope and Learning on Chicago’s South Side, and Timuel Black, Bridges of Memory, kindly posed for photographs and switched books with me for variety.
And Ruth Ross Gilbert, my dear friend and Roosevelt U. alumnus, was also at my side at the Forum, just as she is in several pages of The Division Street Princess.
Enjoy the pictures – even those where my eyes are closed in that pairing with beautiful Leslie B. And that's my Ruthie, to the left.
