Those who enjoyed  Our Little Sister earlier this year should find this latest drama from Japanese director Hirokazu Koreeda equally rewarding.  A private detective who spends most of his money gambling tries to reconnect with his estranged family and young son.  "I've admired Mr. Kore-eda's work for many years... His latest film, though, has a special warmth and grace." -- Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal.

Author Event: David Kaplan

7:30 PM - 8:30 PM
Glencoe Public Library
Johnson Room
In 2011, Theo Epstein became the new Chicago Cubs president of baseball operations, flipping the switch on the lovable loser franchise and initiating a plan to accomplish in Chicago what he'd succeeded in as general manager of the Boston Red Sox: ending a World Series drought.  In The Plan: Epstein, Maddon, and the Audacious Blueprint for a Cubs Dynasty (Triumph Books, May 2017), David Kaplan of CSN Chicago and ESPN Radio goes behind the scenes with the Cubs and their front office, walking the steps of their captivating rise to becoming 2016 World Series champions. Featuring exclusive interviews with Epstein, owner Tom Ricketts, and other team insiders, this is the definitive account of a new era on the North Side. A fixture of the Chicago sports scene since 1995, the Emmy-Award winning Mr. Kaplan hosts a daily tv show (“Sports Talk Live”) and a daily radio show (“Kap and Co.”). He also is the pre- and post-game host for CSN’s Chicago Cubs broadcasts. He will speak, field questions, and sign book. Copies of The Plan will be available for sale at the event from The Book Stall.
