Storytelling and Public History

Chicagoans understand their history as much through each other’s stories as through history books.  Join artist Samantha Hill, Albany Park Theatre Project director David Feiner, author Miles Harvey, historian Jennifer Brier and moderator Dawn Turner Trice of the Chicago Tribune for a discussion of how storytelling informs our understanding of history and shapes our culture.
The Chicago Public Library celebrates the storytelling tradition and the way our stories celebrate the many cultures of our city with the current One Book, One Chicago celebration of Isabel Wilkerson’s The Warmth of Other Suns and the broader theme of how migration has shaped Chicago.
