What to See

I found The Pursuit of Lucy Banning at a tiny bookstore just off the campus of the University of Chicago. I fell in love with the place the first time I saw it. You have to duck your head under a moss covered awning and climb down thin steps to get inside. And then –  a literary world opens up for you. I browsed the store on my first visit – eager to learn as much about the university as possible because I was leaving my daughter there to start a whole new life without us. I spotted the book and snapped it up.  It turned out to be a nice little primer on the Gilded Age – and the university played a small role in that. But the story also escorted me around some other neighborhoods in Chicago.
