Historian and author, Dr. Leslie Goddard, takes us back in time over 150 years ago when Marshall Field’s reigned as Chicago’s premiere department store.  Learn how a small dry goods business turned into a world-class retail destination with the latest fashions and memorable courteous service, and then the next time you shop at the flagship location you can see how far the store has come over the years. 

The Driehaus Museum presents our annual Fall Book Club.  Discuss Gilded Age fiction, biography, and history with the authors and historians.  The books are available at the Museum Store.  Light refreshments will be provided.  A welcome email will introduce the book, the discussion leaders, and discussion topics.  Participants should arrive to each book club having read the book.  Tickets include Museum admission.
