Bookshop Window Display of the Day: 57th Street Books

Posted Wednesday on Facebook by 57th Street Books, Chicago, Ill.: "We are very excited to unveil our very first author-curated window display! We'll let our first curator, the inimitable @eve.ewing, tell the story of how this project came to be."

Ewing, author of Electric Arches and Ghosts in the Schoolyard: Racism and School Closings on Chicago's South Side, noted on Instagram: "Once upon a time someone tagged me in a pic where Electric Arches was in the window of @57thstreetbooks. I replied and said that was really special to me because many years ago there used to be an employee who made the best window displays and I loved staring at them and in my heart my secret dream job was to make one. And then @57thstreetbooks replied and said... okay, come make one. so here’s my book display!!!!! NEW CAREER?!?!? go check it out! Featuring books I love :). It’ll be up all month."
