About the Storytelling Series
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 our 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. The ongoing series takes place fireside in the Drawing Room, is complimentary to attendees, and affords one hour of storytelling followed by a brief Q&A. To withstand the test of time, sessions are recorded for our Storytelling Series Podcast, available for download and listening at ChicagoAthleticEvents.com and on iTunes.
