For our online program in November, author Greg Borzo, who previously spoke to us about his book Fountains of Chicago, is returning, this time to talk about his book Lost Restaurants of Chicago.

A Chicago-born and -raised writer, public speaker, and docent at the Chicago History Museum, Greg majored in anthropology at Grinnell College before going on to work at the AMA, the University of Chicago and the Field Museum.

If you’re biking in Chicago, you’re likely to see him, as he’s an avid cyclist. Fittingly, then, Greg’s other books include Where to Bike in Chicago as well as Chicago Cable Cars, El Trains, and, most recently, History Lover’s Guide to Chicago.

This online event is free, but you will need to register in advance in order to receive the Zoom details.

(Please note: if you don’t receive a registration confirmation email, you are not registered in our system. If you have any questions, please contact Simon Crow.)
