Harold Washington Library

We check in with the Chicago Public Library chief about being named in Fast Company's 100 “Most Creative People in Business” and what books he's taking to the beach this summer.

If you're headed to a beach somewhere to bake on the sand for a while ... well, first of all, don't forget the sunscreen. But just as importantly, don't forget to bring a bag full of books to keep you company. 

No more pencils, but plenty of books. With summer underway and the holiday weekend ahead, we revisit our discussion of hot reads for the season with our literary panel.
