Northwest Chicago Historical Society VP Dan Pogorzelski together with Jacob Kaplan, Rob Reid, and Elisa Addlesperger have written a book on Avondale and Chicago's Polish Village, the definitive history of the "neighborhood that built Chicago."
Join us as we celebrate the release of "Avondale and Chicago's Polish Village" from Arcadia Publishing on Sunday, July 27th at 6PM at Podlasie Club, 2918 N. Central Park in Chicago.
Learn about the neighborhood that lured not only immigrants and proletarians, but also noted figures such as street photographer Vivian Maier, Presidents George H.W. Bush and Lech Kaczyński, Hillary Clinton, Pope Saint John Paul II, as well as Wayne Campbell & Garth Algar from the film "Wayne's World"
We'll have brewskis on tap, music, notable guests, and most importantly, BOOKS FOR SALE!
