CHRISTINE BADER - A Chicago Council Event

Wednesday, April 29th

5:30 pm at The Chicago Council, 332 S Michigan Ave, Chicago

 

What obligation do corporations have to society? According to traditional capitalist thinkers like Milton Friedman, the simple answer is none. A company’s sole responsibility is to increase profits – a view at odds with today’s focus on sustainable and socially-responsible business practices. As corporate giants like Google, Patagonia, and Target move to include social responsibility as a core value, how are the benefits to both their bottom line and public image changing the relationship between business and society?

ANGELA STENT - A Chicago Council Event

Wednesday, April 29th

5:30 pm at The Standard Club

 

Since the onset of the Ukraine crisis, US public opinion of Russia has reached lows not seen since the Cold War, according to polling by The Chicago Council. Despite a thawing of relations after the collapse of the Soviet Union, and President Obama’s attempted “reset,” successive US administrations have struggled to forge a productive partnership with Moscow. Is President Putin’s anti-US stance a domestic political ploy, or pure realpolitik? Did US and European policy, particularly the expansion of NATO, contribute to the current tensions? Join The Chicago Council and Angela Stent for an exploration of how history, ideology, and personality have shaped the US and Russia’s post-Cold War relations.

INDEPENDENT BOOKSTORE DAY!!!

Saturday, May 2nd

All Day at The Book Stall

On Saturday, May 2, independent bookstores across the Chicago area will be offering special activities and events. We at The Book Stall have decided to celebrate you, our customers, who are the key to our success. So, we are planning a party! Saturday morning at 10 am, Andrew Cohen will discuss his new book, Two Days in June about John F. Kennedy. In the afternoon, we have nationally known local authors coming to help as “guest booksellers.” Barb Mahany (Slowing Time), Rebecca Makkai (The Borrowers and The Hundred-Year House), Renee Rosen (Dollface and What the Lady Wants), and others will be on hand to chat about their own books and talk about some of their favorite titles. Mitch Rogatz, publisher of Triumph Books will be on hand to talk about some of his favorite sports books. We’ll also be raffling off new hardcovers, giving away Advanced Reader Copies (ARCs), offering extra discounts throughout the day, and promoting special merchandise to commemorate the occasion. Our kids’ department is also planning some great activities that day.

 

This event is free and open to the public.
