Just twenty years after the Great Fire, the 1893 World’s Fair announced Chicago’s arrival as a world-class city. Former history teacher Lori Matten leads a discussion about the fair, which explores the World’s Fair’s architecture, innovations, exhibits, patrons and local connections to H.H. Holmes, “The Devil in the White City.” Advance reservations are required.
