28 July 2012, Day 53

Scenes from the Newberry Library's Annual Book Fair and the Bughouse Square Debates, including the bestowing of the coveted Dill Pickle Award to Sam Singleton, Atheist Evangelist. The topic of the main debate was "Who's to Blame for the Great Recession, Big Government or Big Business?" with one side represented by someone from Occupy Chicago and the other by a member of the Chicago Tea Party. I feel a bit guilty for getting there so close to the end, but the six rooms of very cheap books on sale across the street at the Newberry managed to hold me in their clutches for much longer than i had anticipated. The sale continues on Sunday from 10 - 6, so check it out if you're in the area. The Newberry Library is located at 60 W. Walton St.
