Upcoming Author Events

Free events and open to the public.

Author, journalist, and lifelong Chicagoan Daniel P. Smith guides readers into the closed-door society that is the Chicago Police Department in his compelling debut work, On the Job: Behind the Stars of the Chicago Police Department. Sharing never-before-told stories of the tolls the job exacts on the officers and their lives while interweaving a discussion of Chicago’s criminal landscape, police department culture, and history, Smith discusses the personal experiences that led him to pen On the Job and the unique perspective he was able to achieve given his background. Includes a question and answer session. Copies of On the Job will be available for the discounted price of $15.
