Remembering Marshall Field's with Leslie Goddard

November 29th, 2018, 7:00pm to 8:30pm
For more than 150 years, Marshall Field and Co. reigned as Chicago's leading department store. This talk traces the store's history from its beginnings in 1852 to its demise in 2006. Photographs, ads, postcards, and memorabilia trace the store's cherished traditions - the Walnut Room Christmas tree, the legendary window displays, and, of course, Frango Mints. [Based on Goddard's book, Remembering Marshall Field's, Arcadia Publishing, 2011.]

All November long, we will be giving out one toy dinosaur to each family that visits the Youth Services desk! We ask that each family pose their dino in silly poses at home and post the photos to Facebook or Instagram, making sure to tag the Berwyn Public Library! We will feature our favorite throughout the month!
