chicago events–upcoming

chicago of today 1946Save the dates!  Plans are still in the works, but it looks like I’ll be at the Printer’s Row Lit Fest talking about skyscrapers and signing copies of Chicago Skyscrapers, 1871-1934 on June 8 and 9–more details on the event here.  It’s a classic Chicago spring happening, and with over 200 authors (including Judy Blume and Art Spiegelman), there will be something for everyone in case skyscrapers aren’t your thing (or if they aren’t someone else’s thing…)

I’ll also be part of a debate on the origins of the skyscraper on June 22 that should prove to be a barn-burner.  Venue and time TBA but it will be sponsored by the Association for Preservation Technology and the Construction History Society.   It will also feature presentations on current skyscraper preservation/design projects.

Finally, for any bookish New Yorkers, we’ll be promoting Chicago Skyscrapers 1871-1934 at the New York Book Expo on May 30.

More information to follow, but hope to see some familiar faces at these…!
