Library to host ‘Devil in the White City’ program

Do you want to learn more about Chicago’s rich and fascinating history?

On Thursday, July 18 at 6 p.m., the Morris Library will offer a program entitled “The Devil in the White City: Magic, Mystery and Murder at the 1893 World’s Fair.” 

The legacy of the fabled White City of the World’s Columbian Exposition in 1893 is historic and rich.  From L. Frank Baum’s “The Wizard of Oz” to Cream of Wheat to the imaginations of Walt Disney and Frank Lloyd Wright, the impact is still felt today. But the darker side of humanity also lurked on the hallowed ground of the World’s Fair:  America’s first serial killer, Dr. H.H. Holmes. 

The program features a virtual tour. Presenter Clarence Goodman has been called a “history savant” and his tours of Chicago have been among the most highly rated and popular. 

This program is free and open to the public. Register at the library or call (815) 942-6880.
