    Mr. McAnnich…

    I wrote and illustrated a picture book about walking through Chicago’s streets, and would like to send you a copy. The work fits perfectly with your excellent blog.

    Would you email an address to which I might forward a copy?

    Your archives are missing! I remembered some excellent posts on the loop churches and synagogue, as well as the church at Northwestern. When I went to look for them I noticed your available archives only go back to August. Is there any way to access these older entries?

      I think if you try clicking on the “October” archive, you should find that old post. It’s titled “Getting Religion.” Thanks for reading!

    My husband Rich and I are the Oak Park couple that met you and your wife over breakfast at the Arbor Inn in Madison last month, when you were returning from your ‘research’ of the Wisconsin supper club scene “Up North.” We just read your article in today’s New York Times Travel section and loved it. In fact, we enjoyed it so much that we decided to do a road trip to northern Wisconsin next spring to check out some of them. I love the Sister Bay Bowl too — especially the Friday night Fish Fry. Congratulations on a terrific piece; you captured the appeal perfectly and it was great fun to read.
