"Tell me if this is true. Your parents met in a way that kind of foreshadowed your future in a little bit like they didn't mean a bar that didn't mean party is actually true that they met at a library. Of course it's a. I've had my own moments with that story. But it's the absolute truth. My mother was going to interview at. What was the large libraries in sta cultural center and my father was working at a desk. Saugus he Slip some gaming but yet that's that's where they met and then my mother was working actually on the the floor where the music was where all the film were. The vinyls that was this is not harold washington library This is before perr washes number and They met their first date was purple. Rain of the movie yet differs date was to go see preparation. The movie that is not suspicious. I eight yeah yeah. My dad loved france and it was really interesting. Because when i was putting out kinsey a memoir that is very reminiscent to me in a lot of ways of the story of purple rain Imprint the first place that i was asked to come pretty much to drop. The album actually was to first avenue for sold out show. And that's where my father lives now. My father has lived in minnesota for longer than twenty years. Twenty five thirty years probably which is why. This album is a purple winds wire at the vinyl herbal. But it was the first show that i was asked to come in do at prince's club where my father would walk at c be reforming in his hometown. Right before the shutdown so was the first and last show that i got to perform before we before the pandemic times matt. What what was it like for you. It was magical. It was so so amazing. I felt like it's called me. They're a felt like prince called me. You know called me to be there not knowing that things would shut down in a couple of weeks after that. But i think that it's sustained me in a way. I really miss performing and to be sold out show. I was called by desa so Of doom tree who lives in minnesota's a artist and author our own. Right of course asked me to come an open for her. So i do the sold out show and it was just one of the most magical experiences that i've had as far The reception was so so incredible and You know the people of minnesota really made me feel like a star that day in so it was just a lot of moments that were more magical more synchronised than even you know just the forty minutes i was on stage. It was just a whole magical experience that it's sort of like everything was leading up to that moment. Have you talked to your dad about that. His show yeah. It was so funny. My dad is very mysterious guy so when he came i didn't see him. He called me till we. It was a great show. And all that but i think just the way my mind works in the art. That was moving through in the art. That i was making and where i was in that space. I can't lie that i was like. I don't even know if he came. I don't even know if he was even actually here and van but me and my dad had this really interesting connection. I mean you have that connection with your parents. You have the connection with people that brought you into the world doesn't have to be so literal or on the phone or shortly proof or whatever life. I have that tie with my parents. My parents no when. I'm going through something whether i talked to them or not. Like they'll feel it from across town or prostate or cross country in so Randomly two or three weeks later. He sends me a video of me like on my last song. You know rocking the stage of okay. Right he was legit there. that's awesome. yeah. I mean as bad i think You know amazon. There's that connection. There's that sort of thing which. I'm fairly practical person. But there's also certain things like that that i just believe in you just feel something doesn't matter where you are I know you're also really close with grandma coming up as well right. Oh yeah my best details. Tell me more better ellen thompson. She was born in nineteen forty three in mississippi. And i love to speak her name. She was one of the first people that clap from me in made a really big deal out of me knowing how to read on my seventh birthday. She made me de. Protagonist of this book was a story of dr martin luther king junior. It should be around here somewhere. But it's right there so in this in this book that my grandmother gave me my tribute to martin luther king. Junior i am the protagonists of this book. And i'm writing a paper on martin luther king junior at tell the story of his life. But i'm you know in the beginning saying oh telling my cousins rookie creek turtle i have to write this paper on martin luther king junior Go into the story by the end of the story. I've told this whole thing. I turned it in. I get a on the paper. That is the book right. So not only. Did my grandmother clap for me. When she sees me reading. And saying that. I you know had a love. For words you should go to market a garden classes with me and sit in a walk me home and then when i began talking she would call me radio or lawnmower. She said because. I've talked so much if you call me that. And that was a foreshadowing in itself. Right i mean of me getting a on the paper. Maybe the paper was the black album. Right me. Being able to use my words for the upliftment of myself in marginalized communities in it was really just kind of like thinking about this is a power device and words in education literature a are powered by

"A panel culture Kogyo by the book, writing that defines a city, Nina is a longtime literary advocates, he's an author, she's also, the owner of book ends and beginnings. Bookstore in Evanston. We were just talking about that. You know, you wrote the book the Leopold and Loeb files an intimate. Look at one of America's most infamous crimes, and that's what you're talking about a little bit in this in the panel coming up tomorrow, and I want to talk about that because what attracts you to this store, the stories well known, but it seems a little bit. I, I don't want to say out of left field for you. But it's but it's just a different kind of thing that you've done in the past. So there are layers to this, because actually what I'm going to be talking about, in the panel is an essay in the Chicago by the book book, and that is it's, it's an essay about the novel compulsion, which was a novel that was based on the Leopold and Loeb, murder by Meyer Levin. And if I if you want me to talk a little bit, I about how I got involved in this, it, I sort of backed into it, but I. About in two thousand nine I created an exhibit for the Northwestern University library, based on a collection of documents. They have that really shouldn't have survived from the nineteen twenties. Because normally they would have been just thrown in the garbage after the court case was over. But in this case, because the court case was so notorious people just kind of took them home, and then they resurfaced and a lot of them have ended up in the northwestern collections. So, for instance, this is a famous case that began with the kidnapping the ransom note, the original ransom note that was sent to Bobby Francis father survived and is in that collects. There are so for people who don't know what this case, is it, it was to. Very supposedly brilliant university of Chicago students named Nathan Leopold, and Richard Loeb, who decided that they were going to kidnap and murder a fourteen year old boy, who turned out to be Bobby Franks. And even though they knew they were going to murder him from the beginning. They were still going to then send a ransom note to his father and collect a ten thousand dollar ransom because to them, this whole thing was sort of an intellectual thrill. And they just wanted to leave. They could get away with it. They most famous murder cases in Chicago history. Yeah. And so here's this incredible collection of not just the ransom note, but there is a complete transcript of their interogations once the police caught onto them leading to their confessions. So there is there description of what of the murder, and what they were thinking all in their own words there. Are really detailed psychiatric reports, so the most famous probably the most famous attorney in US history. Clarence Darrow, ended up representing them. He commissioned these psychiatric reports because originally thought he was going to use an insanity defense. So here's all this incredibly detailed material on their families, and how they grew up and what they were thinking. And then there's a five thousand page court transcripts, so it's it, which is Clarence basically, this dramatic reads, almost like a screenplay of Clarence Darrow at the height of his powers trying to get them saved from the death penalty. So I did this exhibit. We put the material out there. We kind of a used the materials to tell a story, but you in an exhibit, you can't reach into the exhibit case and open the writings up in read in nets really what you've done here. That's where the book came from is. It's like it translates. This exhibit into a book, so you can go to this case, which is one of the most it's been fictionalised, there have been movies, there have been plays it, and it's been done in nonfiction. And my thought was is usually embellished in some way, but I wanted to be able to take readers back into the rooms where all this stuff was fascinating, the Nina for you at this panel to take on the essay, the compulsion essay, which is really about the old lo why why, why why showcase that in this panel tomorrow. So I'm part of a book and the purpose of the book, Chicago by the book is to pull together a hundred one essays about different literary works, and publications that have really been essential to defining who Chicago is in everyone's imagination, and it's an incredible collection of materials. I don't think anything like this has ever really been done before. We'll be talking about what is the literature of Chicago. I think this book is the best thing. We have so far to talk about. What is the literature of Chicago? I was asked everybody in the book was commissioned to write an essay on some book that had been chosen because it was significant. So I was asked to write on compulsion compulsion is a fascinating fascinating book, because a lot of people consider it to be the first nonfiction, novel, even before Truman Capote's in cold blood. A lot of it is lifted directly out of the materials that are in my book, the court transcripts, like, the, the character, whose Clarence Darrow in the book speaks Clarence Darrow was exact words, but it was written by Meyer Levin, who actually was a cub reporter as the trial was unfolding. He was also at the university of Chicago. So he knew a lot of the contemporaries of Leopold and Loeb so he did early reporting on the case. And then he went on, and he had a spectacular literary career, but thirty years later, this case was still really bothering him because the one thing about this case, it's a real wide done it. We always knew who did it, but nobody can wrap their head around why to brilliant, even today. Right. Socially, prominent kids like that. Would ruin their lives to do something as evil and stupid as murder a fourteen year old boy for kicks. Nobody gets that. So Meyer, Levin, thirty years later really wanted to probe this he went to Leopold in prison. Leopold was in prison and, and proposed that they collaborate on, on writing Leopold's memoir. Wow. Well, that'll be part of the Chicago by the book, writing that defines the city panel, which will be on Saturday at eleven o'clock at the Harold Washington library center in the video theater room. It's four hundred south State Street, that great room Nina Barrett. The owner of book ends and beginnings as the bookstore in Evanston. She's also the author of Leopold and Loeb files, an intimate look at one of America's most infamous crimes, and also a one of the early programmers of the lit fest, which back in the day was the book fair, Nina, thanks so much for coming in on extension.

"Was in the Virgin Islands once. Girl. We ate lobster drank colossus sunset you made love. Pretty. That day. Thank you wish. A glass was happy kinda guy, right? What would you do? If you were stuck in one place, every day was exactly the same and nothing that he didn't Attard. Bill Murray, groundhog day. Okay. So you drawn that to say, what after this, and our studio Austin clan Cape going, ten ways to stay creative in good times, and bad is his latest book. He's talking about it tonight at the Harold Washington library can folks still see you at six o'clock tonight is still possible to get tickets. Yeah. Come on down. So we played the Bill Murray clip from Brown hug day where he and in fact, the chapter in your book is the first or second chance, the first chapter titled every day is groundhog day. So what are you talking about here? I think we all feel like sometimes our life is out of our control and life becomes very repetitive. You know, like we're just sort of like whenever I go out to my studio. I, I walk out the garage behind my house where I work, and I go in and close the door and I sit down and look at a blank page, I think to myself, didn't I just do this yesterday? You know, the created all lives. Have a certain amount of repetition to them. But I think what Phil discovers, which is so wonderful that even though his life is ultimately out of his control. He's repeating the same day or over, he discovers that each day gift is a gift and it's the meaning of his life is how he fills those days that he gets. And I think that's the point that we all sort of have to come to the even though we might feel stuck in these loops. You know, stuck in these sort of creative routes every once in a while it's really how we fill our days, the provides the meaning for our life. And I think all great creative artists sort of have this sort of daily practice in which they do sort of go back to a blank page every day, and they do sort of do the same thing every day. But that's an opportunity for them to get the good stuff. But I'm also still again, thinking about people whose jobs, lives aren't inherently creative. They work on an assembly line at a factory or something like that. And I'm glad to hear you saying what I think, is even if that's the case. What's more important is how do you feel your life with things that make you happy? That's a creative process. How do you find or maintain that exactly? How do you find it? Maintain some sort of creativity in your everyday life. When you're when you're when you are away from the line. You know, when you're when you're. In your personal life. When you're at home, or, or even when you're on your lunch break, you know, because I think lunch break, so this wonderful opportunity to sort of disengage, and do something creative. Whether it's just take a walk or spend a little time with a notebook or even listening to music, which piece of advice, you have the people come back to time and again for and say, wow, what a game changer. Thank you for that. Oh, I think the for this book one that people keep bringing up over and over is forget the noun do the verb. Now. What does that mean? Well, we all know people who wanna be writers that writing thing, it's a little tricky. Right. And I think that, you know, if you forget about the job title you want. And you think about the work to be done so forget about being a novelist just worry about writing. I think that will take you someplace, further and far more interesting than obsessing about this now that you wanna be. Because if you focus on the verb, you know, if you just right. Maybe discover that you're poet, non novelist. Maybe discover a talent for screenwriting or maybe discovered that you're never going to make any money doing either. But don't you enjoy writing imagining a screenplay and putting it to paper you sure, yeah. Like, maybe discover that. Wow. I really do love filling that journal in the morning before I go off to work really juices me up. It was just on vacation. And I was trying to every day journal what I did that day cool, including what I wore. And my wife said, why are you putting that down, or somebody else that, and I said, well, because when I think back on trips I've taken I packed of clothes I ate food. I did. These things, and I want to try and remember as much of the experiences. I can't you're closer, very personal part of your day. So I put down I had on my coral pants with gray shoes and a print shirt. And every time I try to do something like that I discovered that it's difficult for me to finish even a week's worth of it that it is. It's, it's task. Yeah. It's easier to not do the task, I so enjoy having done it. But I close with this just give me a thought on the discipline it requires to do these things that will make your life, more fulfilled. I just think of it like doing pushups, you know, like, we all kind of know that, like, well, if you wanna get ripped like you gotta do your pushups every day, you know, and it's the same for creative work. Like if you don't show up every day, you're not going to have the muscles to do it, and you're not gonna find your great works. You should do your show tonight without your shirt on. Are you ripped? No. But you are here. There's a reason why I write the book is ripped it's called keep going. It's a little five inch by six inch blue paperback. If you will pretty laminated pages in his art of sorts in there it's by Austin plea on its subtitle, ten ways to stay creative in good times and bad. So right book at the right time Austin, thanks for coming into our studio. Thanks for having me. We'll come back to Chicago. Extension seven twenty here on WGN Jon Hansen.

This comes from WGN out in Chicago watching pornography in libraries is nothing. New the public institutions argued for decades that the patient patrons right to do. So is protected by the first amendment. Let me see if I got this, right? So you can you can watch pornos at the public library. That's okay. But if if you don't want to call somebody a guy and address a guy, then you're in trouble. I'm just get confused a lot. All right. But but but bumper. You're asking difficult questions about why Chicago libraries try to determine why so many dolts were looking at pornography. At the herald, Washington library. They looked at it back in twenty eight that's eleven years ago. No, libraries in favor of this. But we have no control a decade later. The problem continues to exist for patrons who find pornography, a nuisance. And the Harold Washington library continues to be a Goto spot. Well, that's good. To know. What has changed is the tone of the people in the industry F places like the all American Library association in Chicago. Someone with the office of for an intellectual freedom said technology, and the law has not changed but behavior policies have while policies prohibit disturbances in the interest of keeping the peace. We've reached a point where technology hasn't changed very much in the last decade law hasn't changed the nature of the library of a public space hasn't changed. She said libraries have come to the point where behavior policies and internet. Use are the best way to address these issues. What does that mean? You can. You can watch pornos in the library. You just can't hoot holler whistle or take your pants off. That's what that means. The problem with internet filters is they are not a silver bullet. They don't work as advertised. She said they over block constitutionally protected materials, they under block materials we are targeting, which might be obscene materials or child pornography. Since special domains designed for x rated sites. Never really took off many libraries are left tolerating the behavior just like they did a decade ago. I love this the library is not the villain here. We're not promoting pornography endorsing it. We're making a medium available to people and that is the internet. Then why are we putting out the internet? I thought books were the thing at libraries makes you wonder. What the future of libraries are given that so much of everything ever created is available for you at home. That is why do we need a library? When you have Google. And a lot of libraries were maybe there still are. It's been awhile since I've been to my local library. They had lots of movies watch of movies. Wait.

"All right. That's great. Sounds great. Let's talk about the book rag the idea for the book lost restaurants have Chicago. You know, we we we like to we like to reminisce here on the show. Like, I said later on after we talk to you gonna open up the phone lines. We're gonna talk about bars and clubs that have closed and other businesses and things like that. Because we miss a lot of these places and there's an emotional attachment to it. So what was it about the lost restaurants? Was there a certain thing that did a restaurant closed down? And you said man, we need to write about I need to write about this. Actually, it was more just from conversing with people just sitting around talking. It just kept coming up. People would mention a restaurant that they like and that they missed three sample. I give tours of the L for the Chicago history museum and part of a chore is to ride around Baluch under loop elevated and more than half a dozen times on different tours. We would go past a restaurant called the planet top bar and grill and more than half a dozen times. Somebody would say oh that restaurant used to be called Binion's, and they had the best turtles soak. That's right. She'll get a where does that come from? And so it's things like that little comments like that conversation sparked my interest in the lost restaurants. Well, I mean, we've got such a great history with food in this city. And restaurants that it's it's it's obviously a great idea for a book. And I just want to mention before we jump into the book and and go into the specifics of the book my neighborhood, just lost a a restaurant at the beginning of the year. The great sabatino's Italian restaurant on park. I live very very near there. And and I was sad to see that place closed down. It was great. It was old school family run. I just thought I love that place. Good food and good prices. It will be sorely missed. Yeah. No question about it. All right. So let's talk a little bit about the structure of the book. How did you? What are the how did you? How did you structure a chapter wise and things like that? Well, there's a, you know, a chapter on the early days of restaurants in in Chicago back when. Women were not allowed in most restaurants. Some of you know, how our restaurants get started. They they were rough and tumble kind of taverns to begin with. There's a chapter on hotel restaurants because hotel restaurants, really kicked it up a notch for Chicago. I've got a chapter on ethnic restaurants. So so important to the fabric of the city another chapter on steakhouses 'cause that's pretty you know, central. Yeah. Beefsteak in Chicago soul. Food restaurants merited a chapter pretty much, you know, by by topic like that. And then finally a chapter on diners delis and dog. So somebody not, you know, white tablecloths restaurants, but some great ones. Nevertheless, not only hotdogs, but Franks. Another hot dog restaurant. It was employing experience and putting it right front and center in their name. And with all of their sold offerings. Well, it's a it's a skit we obviously, we're great hotdog town. There's no there's no question. But I will say this looking at the materials for your book. I did not know until I was reading a part of your book that one cow closed down. I didn't know that. And that was my go-to restaurant chimed been there in a few years. But that was my go to restaurant anytime. We would go to Chinatown. That's where we go. Tell us about that restaurant. Well, that was the longest running Chinese American restaurant in Chicago. And it closed in. Twenty seventeen and. It it j just ran out of steam often one generation will take over for another and then another, but eventually no one in the family. No one in the business wanted to keep that going. It's a lot of work to run a restaurant, and you're talking some really long hours. Yeah. And and so we were sorry to see to see that one close.

"Did you ever go there? I never could afford that one. I wonder why they cabdriver when I went to shock. Maybe I was just very frugal at the time. What what do you think? I mean, Chicago has always been known as a sort of meat and potatoes town in part because we have the stockyards known there. Your book makes me categorize it. Just a food town. Well, I think in in the sixties it really opened up. It was pretty much meat and potatoes prior to that. But then with the whole interest in French food at Julia child going on TV. You know, the art of French cooking. Maximes coming to Chicago, the first chained chained first franchise of Maxine outside of Paris, setting up shop in Chicago at puts Chicago on the map, and it grew from there. What do you think? Now, do you think Chicago? I hate it's in the book, and you have to use it. But the word foodie drives me nuts because when I think of a foodie, I think of someone who goes from place to place to place to sample the new stuff, and I'm the kind of guy. I am. So glad that a place like twin anchors in old town. It's still there. It's a touchstone for me absolutely movies have been filmed there, even not only the ambiance and the food. But it's just it's a magnet. Yeah. And I think people are gonna get that when they read this book, they're going to be reminded of the mazing times, they had, you know, places as rarefied as the empire room in the pump room and also places like like Doug flows flow. He's swinging back and forth in front of the restaurant right on Randolph near State Street. You asked me a few days ago rift did you ever go to flows, and I'm like, yeah. Of course, the great thing about flows is very talking. I go. I said great. They had great milk. It was just it was just west of State Street on Randolph right next to were very close to a place called bears treasure chest, which is kind of like a toy magic shop crazy place. But the great thing about flows when I was at a certain age like twelve or thirteen stand across the street and just stare. She was up about three stories, right? Couple stories, and they did have a woman in a kind of chorus girl. Outfit swinging on a swing. They did have good milkshakes. But but the image of the girl now with eighty five year old woman somewhere if any of you out there listening, you were the girl on the flows all last wing.

"Bankruptcy code tonight at six o'clock at the Harold Washington library downtown Chicago, Susan orlean will be reading from or talking about her book the library book. We're live streaming right now if you're watching us on Instagram, so Hello. Here's a picture of the bunk. And you are reading from the book tonight. I'm gonna read and talk about it. What's the what's the passage that you favor when you want to give them a taste of the book. Well, it's it's a little tricky because the book is about so many different things that whatever I pick feels like I'm leaving something else out. But I I read from the beginning a little bit about. Having recollections of going to the library with my mom how profoundly moving those memories were. And it was a big reason. I ended up doing the book was just thinking why was why is going to the library so meaningful what what about it stick? So so deeply you also confessed that you thought you weren't going to write books anymore because they were just not enough too much workers. How you put it? But you alluded to that. I don't say that. Well, it makes me feel good to hear that that that would seem to be a loss. I. You know books are really hard. I was working on this five years. Yeah. Close to six and I loved it. And at the same time, I was it's overwhelming. Through such a thorough job for God's sakes. That's I think the secret. I've got to do something. And every book I began by saying. Well, this one will be easy. Oh, yes. The library fire, and I live nearby and right out of the gate, you met his what was it sister? Mom, right. She was a coup. She was a lot of fun. I make a story about her. Couple of family members will pass it up here by. Yep. You're this is exactly what I thought. And then suddenly it became this fascinating complex multifaceted story that I couldn't resist and we learned so much about America as we learned about the pollution of libraries and the characters around the one in L A. Here's a little thing. I didn't know until I read your book that in Atlanta, the library was not open to blacks as recently as nineteen fifty nine. Yeah. It was I presume there was a library for people of color, but the big library that the white people into an Atlanta African Americans could not go to in one thousand nine hundred fifty nine I know it's it's absolutely shocked. Talking. And there were a Atlanta was probably the biggest segregated libraries that lasted that long. But it's it's Donna Shing and to back up further the most libraries when they first opened weren't open to women and also coincidentally because we think of libraries is somewhere you go with kids. Early on libraries weren't open to children ever at all. And you know, kids had to be they had to be adults to use it fast forward. Now there these multipurpose internet and also analog resource centers, and you had a little line in there. They kind of got me thinking the other day you've talked about in the Los Angeles central library that people there today will be on the internet a lot. Computers there and some of them are looking at pornography and that the librarians allow that as long as it's not illegal pornography. Right. Is that true of most libraries? Yeah. I think the feeling is that if it's legal and not child pornography or something that is prime officia illegal. It's a matter of privacy and freedom of speech that they that they can look at it. And. You can see arguments both ways. But I think librarians feeling is that they're not sensors, and they're not gonna come and say to you. That's not something good for you to be looking at. So if you get the New York Times bestseller list here they are Sunday's paper yesterday or two days ago. There's the top fifteen and guess who is it number twelve and moving up to I think, let's see one one of these lists. You had moved up a notch. I know you care. Yeah. Last week you were at thirteen on the print hardcover bestseller. Now, you're number twelve. I gotta go have the option. This is going to be a movie it's going to be a television series. What a great idea. Yeah. I'm very excited about you. I guess Volvo. We'll figure that out. Netflix. Well, it'll be on Netflix or HBO. We're not sure what the platform is gonna play. You think I should play? Unless Meryl Streep is still available. Yep. I'll check in with her.

Their plans Date but When he, was born this is how. Everything started when he. Was born after I, had four, their kids the doctors and the nurses turned to me within minutes, and said I'm, sorry They knew we had down syndrome by just looking, at them and immediately that sent me. Into this horrible darkness and this terrible place that I. Did not want to go to so after holding my baby and smelling. Them and noticing. He, looks just like the. Other four I realize there's. Nothing to be sorry about. Now now so I. Started a foundation to celebrate all children born with different abilities it's that.
