The Chicago Athletic Association hotel’s Storytelling Series shares compelling stories and interviews from inspiring movers, shakers and visitors making an impact in Chicago and beyond. From artists to musicians, innovators and adventurers to visionaries with a great story to tell – the series gives an inside look into the experiences that have shaped the speakers’ work and lives. While the hotel’s 124-year-old walls may not be able to tell tales of the past – and boy if they could – the Storytelling Series honors the tradition of welcoming the world’s finest into its halls by capturing today’s tales.
