Avondale and Chicago’s Polish Village

Some 949 days ago, I took the afternoon off work to meet Daniel Pogorzelski and Jacob Kaplan at a senior center to see their presentation on the Avondale neighborhood. That day we discussed writing a book (along with Elisa Addlesperger), which was officially released on July 21, 2014.

So that’s my excuse for not keeping this blog up to date.

Here’s a schedule of our book signing events, where you can pick up a copy of the book and get it signed by the authors.

July 27 @ 6 PM Podlasie Club 2918 N. Central Park, Chicago
August 23 @ 3 PM Comfort Station 2579 N. Milwaukee, Chicago
September 2 @ 9 PM Hungry Brain 2319 W. Belmont, Chicago
September 6 @ 6 PM City Newstand 4018 N. Cicero, Chicago
November 18 @ 6 PM Mirabell 3454 W. Addison, Chicago
TBD Harold Washington Library 400 S State St., Chicago

If you’re not in Chicago, you can pick up a copy online at Arcadia Publishing. I hope you enjoy reading about Avondale’s history as much as we did uncovering it!
