Event Details

[Online] Two of Chicago’s most celebrated architecture critics, Blair Kamin and Lee Bey, discuss their vividly illustrated new book, Who Is the City For? Architecture, Equity, and the Public Realm in Chicago. Learn about their views of Chicago that reach beyond its glamorous downtown and dramatic buildings to include the city’s culturally diverse neighborhoods. These former rivals at the Chicago Tribune and Chicago Sun-Times collaborate to highlight the shared spaces of the public realm and the urgent need to rebuild Black and brown neighborhoods devastated by decades of discrimination and disinvestment.

Presented in partnership with Glencoe Public Library, Highland Park Public Library, and Vernon Area Public Library.

Book sales available through The Book Stall.
