Past Events


One Book One Town
Answers in the Pages
In February 2023, EQDG presented a
community reading event and
conversation. In partnership with the
Downers Grove Public Library, our hope
was to inspire productive dialogue and to
discover the commonalities that unite us as
a strong, caring, dynamic community.
