Metro Chicago SWAN Day 2012 Celebrations

After a month of exciting events including WITASWAN films at Gene Siskel Film Center, Harold Washington Library Center, Skokie Public Library, & the Showplace Icon, and the second annual SWAN Day at the Goodman (attending The Convert followed by dinner at Petterinos with Regina Taylor), plus my annual “If I Ruled the World” presentation at Harold Washington College and my Penny’s Picks kick-off event at Women and Children First bookstore, my own celebration of the 5th Annual International SWAN Day began with a return trip to the Smart Gallery in Hyde Park to see Suzanne Lacy’s exhibit with BFF Dorthea Juul!
