Over the ages, the tallgrass prairie landscape has served Illinois residents as grocery store, pharmacy, art supply shop, and even as a place to find love potions! Discover the charming stories behind these rugged native plants and learn about their utility in home gardens. Presented by Cindy Crosby, the steward supervisor of the Schulenberg Prairie at The Morton Arboretum and a steward at Nachusa Grasslands. Cosponsored with the Friends of the Green Bay Trail.
Magician and artist Jeanette Andrews will lead a charming performance of illusions where impossible feats happen before your very eyes. She comes to the library fresh from commissions for The Smithsonian’s National Design Museum Cooper Hewitt, the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, and SoHo House in New York City. Hailed as one of the most innovative illusionists today and “an inspiration,” Ms. Andrews makes magic her life’s work. Her performances have been praised by PBS and the Chicago Tribune.
The performance is intended for an adult audience, although ages 13 and up are welcome. Please do not bring young children to this evening of elegant, interactive magic.

p.m. and re-open for event seating at 6:30. Other library services will be
unavailable during the performance.
