2014 Bughouse Square Debates

We'll have a table at the 2014 Bughouse Square Debates and we'd love to see you there. 

What are the Bughouse Square Debates? Here's how the Newberry Library describes them:

Join Rick Kogan and the Newberry Library in demonstrating that Chicago’s long and proud history as a hub of free speech is alive and well! The program starts at noon with stimulating and entertaining performances by the Shakespeare Project of Chicago, led by Stephen Spencer, and with the Environmental Encroachment Marching Band. Be part of the outspoken citizenry in Shakespeare’s Julius Ceasar and hear Brutus and Marc Antony’s famous speeches, as well as other rhetorical greats from Shakespeare.

The Debates will begin at 1 pm and will offer a stimulating afternoon of public speech. See this year’s Altgeld Award for Free Speech winner and enjoy music by the Environmental Encroachment Marching Band. Bring your loudest heckling voice, mount the open soapbox, and keep free speech alive and well. Take it to the park this summer!

All the details are on the Newberry Library's website

This event is free.
