Join us for an evening with bestselling novelist Scott Turow on Friday, December 6, 2013; 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at our Arthur C. Nielsen, Jr. Campus!

Nobody blends political and legal intrigue better than Chicago’s own Scott Turow. To launch the weekend’s festivities, Mr. Turow will join us for a reading and discussion of his new novel, “Identical.” This thriller illuminates the complex story of State Sen. Paul Giannis’ life in politics and his candidacy for mayor of Kindle County. Complications arise when Giannis’ identical twin brother Cass, is released from prison, 25 years after pleading guilty to the murder of his girlfriend. In classic Turow style, a re-investigation of the old murder case uncovers a mysterious web of murder, sex and betrayal. The Los Angeles Times Book Review called Turow’s latest book “a compulsively readable crime story,” and said, “Even when ‘Identical’s’ many twists challenge the reader to figure out who’s on first, it is Turow’s deftly drawn characters — coping with advancing age, old grief and lost love — that linger in the mind.”

A book signing and a reception with refreshments will follow Mr. Turow’s presentation. Books will be available for purchase at each event, but are not included in the ticket price. All proceeds benefit North Shore Senior Center and its support services for older adults.
Admission: $25 per person (Ages 18 and under are admitted for free.)
To make reservations, please contact Mary Margaret Parker at mparker@nssc.org or 847.784.6050.

We would like to offer special thanks to our sponsors, who have graciously donated refreshments for the reception: Dominick’s of Northfield; Penny’s Noodle Shop; and Three Tarts Bakery & Cafe.

I am thrilled to announce that North Shore Senior Center received a five-year accreditation from the National Institute of Senior Centers (NISC).  This is the fourth five-year accreditation we have received and North Shore Senior Center was one of the first in the country to receive this accreditation.

Below is a link to the announcement in the National Council on Aging newsletter:

Congratulations to Mary Staackmann who led this effort and the great team of volunteers, headed by Ron Mantegna,  who worked hard to prepare us for the accreditation.

Jordan Luhr
Executive Director
