When investigating the mysteries of Chicago’s past, it’s helpful to examine the physical evidence. From a jersey worn by Michael Jordan to a relic of the Great Chicago Fire and the guns used in the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre, these talismans chronicle the city’s tragedies and triumphs. Joseph Gustaitis explores Chicago’s history through fifty carefully chosen objects, a collection that includes South-side items such as a Harold Washington campaign button, stockyard knives, a Ferris Wheel memento, and Nelson Algren’s typewriter.

Joe will be bringing some of hi s 50 objects to show during the Zoom session and he is inviting participants to bring their own significant objects to share with the group.

All Are Welcome!
