Looking for something fun to do on Saturday? We would like to invite you to improve your cooking skills with us by making Filipino Chicken (or Tofu!) Adobo.
Please join us for the Southeast Asia cooking event - Filipino Adobo, a simple and tasty recipe with easy-to-find ingredients. Our designated Chef Vinnie and his husband will help you spice up your meal.
Adobo is a type of Filipino stew commonly made with chicken, but can also be made with other proteins. Chicken Adobo is unofficially considered the national dish of the Philippines, popular all over the country and in the Filipino diaspora. "Adobo" comes from the Spanish word "adobar," which means "to marinate." It’s also easy to make and doesn’t take much time to prepare!
Vinnie’s recipe can be made vegan by using tofu instead of chicken. Please RSVP to attend. The recipe and ingredient list will be sent out 1 week before the event.

We are pleased to announce that the next Books Abroad, Feminist Reading Group pick is "The House of Mirth" by Edith Wharton!Voted for by an overwhelming margin in our recent public vote for our next book selection, this book is a wonderful choice for many reasons.Written in 1905, the novel tells the story of a young woman reaching her 29th year, an age when her youth is coming to an end and her marital prospects are becoming slim. "The House of Mirth" traces her descent from privilege to a lonely life on the margins of society.Wharton in The House of Mirth probes her situation like an entomologist. A classic novel by a writer who was controversial in her own rite, it deftly portrays the moral, social and economic restraints on a woman who dared to claim the privileges of marriage without assuming the responsibilities.“The story carries you along even though it takes place in the early 20th century in a world and milieu that are far from us today. It shows us the progress we’ve made, even though we have a long way to go! What’s instructive and worthy of discussion is the question of what makes a feminist,” says Sheila Malovany-Chevallier, the Books Abroad planning team member who nominated the book.We will discuss “The House of Mirth” on Sunday, May 23rd at 2pm CEDT.

An issue that has been of long relevance to our overseas community has been immigration and the ability of LGBTQ+ families to immigrate and reside legally in the US and pass US citizenship to their children. We will be joined by Shirley Tan and her spouse Jay Mercado for an intimate look back at their journey to keep their family together when Shirley faced deportation, and Shirley's testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

The group Faye and Fluffy’s Story Time is hosted by drag queens with a message full of joy and laughter. The Toronto based Canvas Art Program will present a story with a message for young and old alike.
The political action that our community is working toward is the Equality Act. We are pulling together a panel of political activists on the state and federal level that are working hard to make this happen. We will have the opportunity to learn how we can best engage to reduce workplace, housing and other discriminatory activity currently experienced by far too many.
We will have a keynote speaker that will be announced in the near future. As we get closer to June 20th we will post a more detailed schedule so you can participate in the program of greatest interest to you.
