I wouldn’t be doing my job if I didn’t make one last push here for our live screening and Q & A with Lindsey Doolittle and her animated short “Goodnight Mr. Vincent Van Gogh” this Wednesday, the 27th, at 6:30 p.m. (Central time). It is a virtual event via Zoom, so anyone can attend online. It is being hosted by the Chicago Public Library and if you register through the library’s website (linked below), I will give you the Zoom link tomorrow afternoon (we typically give them out 24 hours ahead of time). Remember, you do not need a library card or Chicago residency to register, you just basically have to fill out a little contact info.
If you can’t/don’t want to register there, try to message here or shoot me a message at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will do my best to ensure you receive the link (I’ll keep checking on messages until it’s almost go time). Unfortunately, once the program is launching after 6 p.m., it will be too late. Hopefully everyone understands with this Zoom deal you need the link! I know, it’s a whole new world.

Lindsey Doolittle is a children’s art educator, author, filmmaker, brave suicide loss survivor, and suicide prevention advocate. She has extensive experience speaking about the subject. Goodnight Mr. Vincent Van Gogh is a book she created to help explain suicide to children by drawing a parallel to some of the darker aspects of the artist’s life we don’t always see. The short film is entirely illustrated by suicide loss survivors.
