Chicago Studies related

For those of you interested in learning more about the history of Chicago architecture, I am posting this link for continuing education seminars provided to me by the Chicago Architectural Foundation. If you’ve got Thursday evenings free during the month of April, consider registering. Who knows, it may encourage you to adopt Chicago Studies emphasis in the near future.

By the way, one faculty member recommended we compile a list Chicago authors as a resource. Who do you believe should be on this list?

We would also like to compile a list of books related to Chicago, like this one:

The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic, and Madness at the Fair that Changed America, by Erik Larson

Bring on the recommendation from your list of favorites.

One thought on “Chicago Studies related

  1. American Pharaoh (Cohen & Taylor), Boss (Royko), Native Son (Wright), Adventures of Augie March (Bellow), Chicago: City on the Make (Algren), There Are No Children Here (Kotlowitz)…those jump to mind immediately for me.

    Other authors with Chicago ties: Sandburg, Sandra Cisneros, Lorraine Hansberry, Gwendolyn Brooks, David Mamet, Rebecca Gilman.

    Umm…I need to look at my book shelf…
