The Cliff Dwellers Book Club


This month marks the beginning of the fifth year of the Chicago-themed Cliff Dwellers Book Club. We are launching the year with Stuart Dybek’s The Coast of Chicago on January 27. Mr. Dybek will be attending the discussion. Participation for all discussions is free and open to the public. We begin promptly at 11:00 am on the fourth Saturday of the month. The discussion usually lasts an hour. Many of us stay for lunch at the club afterwards. The Cliff Dwellers is located at 200 S. Michigan Avenue, across the street from the Art Institute. Please contact me at the email address below if you have queries.
