Get Ready for Chicago Humanities Festival 2015

The Chicago Humanities Festival returns October 24 through November 8 as a celebration of humanities and the arts at various venues throughout the city. The festival programming contains over 180 events specializing in music, performance, film, comedy, literature and the arts. Event tickets go on sale for festival members on September 8 and to the public on September 14.

This year, their calendar is heavy with readings and discussions with too many talented authors and writers to list. Highlights include an evening with Sarah Vowel, a discussion with Daily Show correspondent Aasif Mandvi, scary stories with Audrey Niffenegger, poetry in performance with Claudia Rankine, an award presented to Salman Rushdie, a conversation with Roxanne Gay, life in cartoons presented by Bob Mankoff, comedian Patton Oswald, and the live storytelling from Manual Cinema.

View the complete schedule of events and get tickets before they're gone.
