Cindy Pritzker in conversation with Bill Kurtis

In celebration of the first anniversary of opening our doors to the public, the Chicago Athletic Association hotel was very pleased to present Mrs. Cindy Pritzker as keynote speaker in the hotel’s ongoing Storytelling Series. Mrs. Pritzker’s talk took place in Cindy’s Rooftop, the crown jewel of the Chicago Athletic Association.  Marian (Cindy) Friend Pritzker is one of the most distinguished women in Chicago today. Among these distinctions, Mrs. Pritzker served as Founder and President of the Chicago Public Library Foundation.  Along with her late husband Jay Prtizker founded the Pritzker Architecture Prize, a distinguished prestigious award that has been compared to the Nobel Prize.

Mrs. Pritzker’s Storytelling Series conversation was moderated by close friend and American broadcaster, Bill Kurtis. Mr. Kurtis is currently the host of THROUGH THE DECADES, on the DECADES Channel, as well as Mr. Peter Sagal’s co-host on the weekly news quiz, “Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me,” on NPR radio. Mr. Kurtis helped in sharing Mrs. Pritzker’s compelling stories, and gave a glimpse into her ever intriguing life in Chicago.
