The program begins with a Kickoff Lecture by Dr. E. Patrick Johnson – Carlos Montezuma Professor of African American Studies and Performance Studies, and founder and director of the Black Arts Initiative at Northwestern University. Dr. Johnson has published widely in the areas of race, class, gender, sexuality, and performance. 

Registration is not required to attend the lecture.

Book discussions begin in mid-October. Registration for a discussion group will begin at the kickoff lecture. Starting September 25, you can also register online at epl.org or by calling 847-448-8620. Copies of the novels are available in limited quantities at the second floor desk.  

Mission Impossible is an annual yearlong program where, over the past decade, hundreds of readers have joined with Library staff to read and discuss classic works of literature.
