Upcoming Events


WNSCI Book Club Returns Over Zoom!

Tuesday, December 8 from 1:00pm -3:00pm

Join us as we discuss The Lake on Fire by Rosellen Brown, an epic narrative that begins among 19th century Jewish immigrants on a failing Wisconsin farm. Dazzled by lore of the American dream, Chaya and her strange, brilliant, young brother Asher stowaway to Chicago; what they discover there, however, is a Gilded Age as empty a façade as the beautiful Columbian Exposition luring thousands to Lake Michigan’s shore. Please click here to register.


Tuesday, January 12 from 1:00pm - 3:00pm

We will be discussing Snow in August by Pete Hammill and again on February 9, reading The Weight of Ink, by Rachel Kaddish. Please join us on Zoom. Registration is required, links to come.





Join us on the second Wednesday of every month starting in September, to discuss a variety of topics, learn from guest speakers and enjoy time in sisterhood. 


All programs in this series are from 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Join Kinneret Kohn, Associate Director for Students and Educators at the Art Institute of Chicago, in investigating how Marc Chagall confronted the topsy-turvy world of 1930s Europe in his painting White Crucifixion. Kinneret is the daughter of Karen Kohn.  


WNSCI's Jacqueline Marcus, nutritionist, and author of many cookbooks will demonstrate how to make some of her favorite winter treats. Just the pick-me-up we'll all need in the middle of January.
