2pm William Pack presenting “The Essential Great Chicago Fire” 4pm Annual Meeting

October 10, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm CDT

2021 marks the 150th Anniversary of the fire! It started in a barn and, two days of flaming hell later, nearly destroyed a city. In The Essential Great Chicago Fire, William weaves together technical details of the fire with vivid firsthand accounts from those who lived through the conflagration of 1871, bringing alive all the excitement and terror in a multi-media storytelling event that will not soon be forgotten.

After the presentation and Q&A the Annual Meeting will be held.
