New Library Trustee Nicholas J. Grimm

What is your favorite book/author and why? A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway. A brilliant writer, young expatriates, Paris in the 1920s...if I have to explain why that's appealing, I'm not sure we can be friends.

How long have you been a member of our community?  What’s your favorite thing to do in Grayslake? I have lived in Grayslake for 3 years.The two things that I enjoy most are swimming in the lake with my kids and getting to know almost everyone in my neighborhood while walking my dog.

What’s your educational background? I received a B.A. in English Literature from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and an M.B.A. from Loyola University in Chicago.

Who is in your family? My wife Liv (pronounced like "leave"), my daughter Margaux, and my son Whittaker. There are also 4 dogs: Maxine, Rhino, Antonio, and Maya.

Fun fact- In a tragedy almost worthy of Shakespeare, I could spend the rest of my life eating ice cream for every meal, and my lactose sensitivity would make me suffer for my love every single time.

The Trustee Vacancy was filled by appointment until the next regular library election (4/2021), at which time a trustee shall be elected for the remainder of the unexpired term.
