Jane’s WalkCHICAGO 2014 is coming!

We’re in the final stages of organizing the 2014 line-up for Jane’s WalkCHICAGO, and I’m happy to announce a preliminary list of events for the weekend of Friday May 2 to Sunday May 4.

We’ll start off the weekend with a kickoff event at the Chicago Cultural Center, with a panel co-sponsored by the Illinois Humanities Council.  We’re not ready to announce the speakers yet, but hold the time-slot of noon to 1PM for a fascinating discussion! 

Our individual Walks will take place on Saturday and Sunday, and the tentative list includes:

·        Clarendon Corridor, led by Melanie Eckner;

·        Columbus Park, led by Julia Bachrach;

·        Dover Street Landmark District: The ABC’s of Preservation, led by John Holden;

·        Hyde Park North, led by an undergraduate at the University of Chicago;

·        Hyde Park South, led by an undergraduate at the University of Chicago;
