May 1st: Everything I Never Told You
Celeste Ng’s Everything I Never Told You is Sherryl’s choice for the May meeting. "Lydia is dead. But they don’t know that yet." So begins this exquisite novel about a Chinese American family living in 1970s small-town Ohio. Lydia is the favorite child of Marilyn and James Lee, and her parents are determined that she will fulfill the dreams they were unable to pursue. But when Lydia’s body is found in the local lake, the delicate balancing act that has been keeping the Lee family together is destroyed, tumbling them into chaos.
A profoundly moving story of family, secrets, and longing, Everything I Never Told You is both a gripping page-turner and a sensitive family portrait, uncovering the ways in which mothers and daughters, fathers and sons, and husbands and wives struggle, all their lives, to understand one another.
June 5th: Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption
Steve Sanofsky will lead the group. We will read Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption by Bryan Stevenson.* Winner of the Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Nonfiction and the NAACP Image Award for Nonfiction, this is a powerful story about the potential for mercy to redeem us, and a clarion call to fix our broken system of justice, from one of the most influential lawyers of our time. Just Mercy is at once an unforgettable account of an idealistic, gifted young lawyer’s coming of age, a moving window into the lives of those he has defended, and an inspiring argument for compassion in the pursuit of justice.

HEART DEFIBRILLATOR NOW AVAILABLE FOR USE AT 55 EAST ERIE
The 55 East Erie Condominium Association is proud to announce that a portable heart defibrillator is now available for emergency use in the building. The Board authorized its purchase and staff training on it in our continuing effort to make our building the best it can be – with health and safety of our residents our first priority!
Each year, more than a quarter-million Americans die from sudden cardiac arrest. According to medical experts, the key to survival is timely response including CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) or the use of a portable lifesaving device such as a heart defibrillator. The device is also known as an “automated external defibrillator” or “AED.”
If you or someone in your unit may be in cardiac arrest, it is important to first call 911 to request emergency medical attention.
Only after 911 has been called should you call the front desk at (312) 440-9917 to request the defibrillator, which a member of the door staff will then bring to your unit for use. The door staff has received training on how to operate the device. The AED is located on the first floor in close proximity to the Door staff desk.
You do not need to be a medical professional to use the device to treat a person in cardiac arrest. The AED device guides the user through the process with audible and visual prompts. The American Heart Association
notes that thousands of lives could be saved annually by prompt use of defibrillators.
If you would like to become familiar with the equipment, location and emergency procedures please make an appointment with the Management Office
Our hope is that the AED will never be needed. But if it is ever needed our building is prepared!
