Block Connector Lori Hermann of the Wrigley Heights neighborhood hosted her first Sippn’ Coffee ☕️ with Neighbors Saturday this morning, which was a huge hit!!! • At least 60 coffee mug holding neighbors hung out together! Lori exclaimed. “We have quite a few young families who just moved into our neighborhood and they were so happy to meet their fellow neighbors. Everyone loved it, said we need to do this more often. Older neighbors and younger came. It was awesome! I had folks bring own mugs too, and that worked great!” • Do you want to host your neighbors and purchase a We Love LB Sippn’ Coffee with Neighbors yard Sign?

Meet Tom. Tom is one of our homebrewers for this years festival. He will be serving The Gazebo, an American IPA. Tom’s Story: “Nearly three years ago, my wife made the "mistake" of buying me a Homebrew kit. It was a one gallon IPA kit from Brooklyn Brew Shop. After making something that somewhat resembled and IPA, the fire was stoked.” We can’t wait to taste! 🍻 • #community #lbhomebrewfest #welovelb #fundraiser #homebrewer

We Love LB’s Book of the Month: The Coddling of the American Mind • — Product description — Something has been going wrong on many college campuses in the last few years. Speakers are shouted down. Students and professors say they are walking on eggshells and are afraid to speak honestly. Rates of anxiety, depression, and suicide are rising—on campus as well as nationally. How did this happen? • First Amendment expert Greg Lukianoff and social psychologist Jonathan Haidt show how the new problems on campus have their origins in three terrible ideas that have become increasingly woven into American childhood and education: What doesn’t kill you makes you weaker; always trust your feelings; and life is a battle between good people and evil people. These three Great Untruths contradict basic psychological principles about well-being and ancient wisdom from many cultures. Embracing these untruths—and the resulting culture of safetyism—interferes with young people’s social, emotional, and intellectual development. It makes it harder for them to become autonomous adults who are able to navigate the bumpy road of life. #community #leadership
