Scott Simon at Wilmette Junior High School

We are delighted to be on site at this free Wilmette Public Library event!

Calling all Cubs fans, NPR listeners, and lovers of great storytelling!  Come meet Scott Simon, award-winning host of NPR’s Weekend Edition Saturday and lifelong Cubs fan, who will talk about his new book,

The event is free and open to the public, and tickets are not required. A book signing will follow, with copies of Mr. Simon's books available for purchase, courtesy of The Book Stall.

One of America's most admired writers, storytellers, and broadcasters, Simon has worn the identity of “Cubs fan” like a battered badge of honor for six decades. Like so many other diehard fans, he never thought he’d live to see the Cubs win the World Series. Now, in his latest book, comprised of part memoir and part club history, Simon shares with readers his heartfelt reflections on his beloved team and the agony and ecstasy of a lifetime of super fandom.
