Chicago Humanities Festival ( CHF ) has shifted its strategy in reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic, rescheduling spring programs for later in the year and moving some events to digital platforms.
Three digital programs are already confirmed with more in the works. The first digital event, on Wed., April 15, is a members-only digital preview: a conversation between CHF's Marilynn Thoma Artistic Director Alison Cuddy and Director of Programming Tiff Beatty about what the 2020 Vision theme means now.
Then, on Thursday, April 16, at 6 p.m., comic Cameron Espositoauthor of the best-selling memoir Save Yourselfwill join Kristen Kaza for a conversation, including answering audience questions. Then, on Tuesday, April 21, at 6 p.m., novelist Veronica Roth, author of the Divergent series, will join the host of WBEZ's Nerdette Podcast Greta Johnson for a conversation, also including audience questions.
