On Sunday 2/27, the the Historic Pullman Garden Club and the Pullman State Historic Site host an author discussion featuring Joan Naper (Beautiful Dreamer) and Frances McNamara (Death at Pullman), and Allium Press Publisher, Emily Victorson. Their works focus on Chicago women who lived, thought, and acted during a period of incredible and often tumultuous social and industrial change, and will be available for purchase.

The event takes place at the Hotel Florence (11111 S. Forrestville Ave) at 3pm and is free of charge. For more information, call (773) 868-8377.
