Jay Bonansinga: Storytelling Secrets from The Walking Dead
January 19, 2023

Master storyteller Bonansinga is the author of the New York Times best-selling series of blockbuster Walking Dead novels as well as dozens of other works of suspense, horror, young adult and historical narrative. His first novel, The Black Mariah, was a finalist for the Bram Stoker Award. The Chicago Tribune calls him one of the most imaginative writers of thrillers. Here’s your chance to learn about the art of storytelling—how to indelibly stamp your story onto the memory of readers or casual listeners. Along the way, Bonansinga describes his own career as a novelist, screenwriter, director, and videogame story creator and explains why he dismisses the advice to “write what you know.”

Alison Hawthorne Deming
A Woven World: On Fashion, Fishermen and the Sardine Dress
February 16, 2023

Only a daring poet, who happens also to be a superb essayist, would try stitching together two endeavors so seemingly disparate as high-fashion dressmaking and ocean-edge fishing. Inspired by an exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, A Woven World is part memoir and part cultural history. Deming’s song of praise to the beauty and fragility of human making celebrates the fading industries and artisans that have defined communities for generations. At a time when so many forces work to unmake the world as we know it, Deming speaks about the role of makers in mending the fabric of life whenever it frays.

The Broadway Musical: America's Own Art Form
March 16, 2023

Over the past 100 years, Broadway musicals have evolved from escapist entertainment to become great works of art. Tapping a lifetime of knowledge, Porchlight Music Theatre's Artistic Director Michael Weber sketches the art form’s transformation—from the bold beginnings of its Golden Age with Show Boat in the 1920s through the watershed era of Oklahoma!, the electrifying West Side Story and acclaimed Cabaret to today's mega hits Les Miserables, Wicked and Hamilton. Along the way gain insights into the shows you love and discover some you may have yet to enjoy.

Handwoven Oriental Rugs from Ancient Times to Today
April 20, 2023

Director of Chicagoland’s internationally renowned, third-generation business Oscar Isberian Rugs and Honorary Consul for the Republic of Armenia in Chicago, Tatosian takes us on a journey across history told through the craft of handwoven rugs. From the mountain regions of ancient Armenia and Anatolia to Persia and China, these rugs came to the West—first to Europe and later to post-Civil War America—as art forms and desirable décor. A robust commercial market emerged at the beginning of the 20th century. With rugs from his collection on hand to illustrate, Tatosian shares his knowledge and personal stories from travels around the world in search of these treasures.
