Tom & Patty Erd
co-owners of The Spice House
Tom and Patty Erd are the co-owners of the fabulous Spice House, arguably the best spice shop in the country. This unique, special business has been family owned for over 60 years, and now consists of five retail stores in IL and WI plus a retail internet site. The Erds will reveal the trials, tribulations, and joys of being part of the world’s second oldest profession, spice merchants. Tom and Patty will add a bit of flavor to their talk by and educating us on “lore and lure” of spices.
Professor of Law at Northwestern University
Policymakers are increasingly confronting the problem of sexual assault, both on and off on college campuses. Yet the laws and practices surrounding rape remain profoundly disconnected from modern understandings of sex and sexuality. While significant obstacles to reform persist, promising efforts to close this gap are underway.
Stanley G. Harris Professor of Economics at Northwestern University
Join Robert Gordon, the Stanley G. Harris Professor of Economics at Northwestern University, as he describes his award winning book and research on the evolution of U.S. living standards since the Civil War. Professor Gordon will explain why economic growth soared in America in the early 20th century, and why it won’t be soaring again any time soon.
Pakistani-Canadian author of "The Atheist Muslim"
Ali will share his emotionally and intellectually compelling personal story of struggling to reconcile the Muslim society he was living in as a scientist and physician and the religion he was being raised in. After losing his faith, he has resolved to use his new freedom of speech to represent the voices that are usually quashed before reaching the mainstream media––those of Atheist Muslims.
Copies of his book "The Atheist Muslim" will be available for sale after the program.
