Chicago Public Library's One Book, One Chicago in partnership with the Art Institute of Chicago, the Chicago Cultural Alliance and WBEZ 91.5 Chicago present Bounty, an exploration of themes at the intersection of culture, cuisine, agriculture and heritage.

Join us for this two-part series that connects our dinner tables with art, culture and the larger world in response to the OBOC 2016 selection Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver. Part one will be presented at the Harold Washington Library on Thursday, April 4.

Part two takes place in the Ryerson and Burnham Libraries at the Art Institute of Chicago and explores the collection's themes of harvest and culinary delight across the globe.

The Ryerson and Burnham Libraries constitute a major art and architecture research collection serving the Art Institute of Chicago and scholars in the fields of art and architectural history with more than 500,000 print titles, 100,000 auction catalogs, 1,200 current serial subscriptions, and extensive digital collections.
