Author, journalist, and lifelong Chicagoan Daniel P. Smith guides readers into the closed-door society that is the Chicago Police Department in his compelling debut work, On the Job: Behind the Stars of the Chicago Police Department. Sharing never-before-told stories of the tolls the job exacts on the officers and their lives while interweaving a discussion of Chicago's criminal landscape, police department culture, and history, Smith discusses the personal experiences and the unique perspective he was able to achieve given his background. Smith has appeared on WGN-TV, Chicago Public Radio, Fox News, WGN radio, and the History Channel. Open to everyone. Register online, by phone at (847) 439-0447, or in person.
