Chicago Humanities Festival Starts This Weekend

You haven’t forgotten about the Chicago Humanities Festival that I mentioned a while back have you? Please, please, please announce it to your students.

Here is a story on the festival from the Tribune, and here is a list of their recommendations. When The Reader comes out with their list, I’ll post it, too. Send the students for extra credit. It’s a great opportunity to see some great minds live and in person. For free, no less.

In the meantime, gor the schedule go HERE; if you want to know more about tickets, you can go HERE.  The short version is as follows:

Teachers/students: Free tickets to most programs are available for students and teachers with valid ID.
