Paul Durica and Bill Savage led a fun and informative evening about the 1893 World’s Fair. Their reading brought to life the time and atmosphere that surrounded the opening of the fair. They read about the many entertainment businesses that arose in anticipation of the crowds that would pass through, many which closed even before the Fair ended because of a major economic depression in the country. Still, almost 28 million visited the Fair, many of whom visited the places mentioned in Chicago by Day and Night.
