Chicago Humanities Festival Presents: George R.R. Martin

Friday, October 11, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Village members only & their guests–$56. Registration opens September 11, deadline September 30 (subject to availability). To register, please call the Village office at 773.248.8700.

HBO’s Game of Thrones may have ended, but the Song of Ice and Fire isn’t over–and no one knows this better than George R. R. Martin. Martin’s global bestselling books that comprise A Song of Ice and Fire have sold more than 90 million copies worldwide, inspired the hit HBO show, and earned him comparisons to J.R.R. Tolkien. Martin is joined by author Eve L. Ewing to discuss his career, his creative process, his latest book Fire and Blood, and why, perhaps counterintuitively, fantasy may be the best way to capture the realities of power. Featuring a performance by special guests Spektral Quartet.

Note: our block of tickets are reserved for Village members only and their guests; general admission tickets through CHF are $75 each. This event will sell out fast!
