On the first weekend that Chicago’s Brookfield Zoo opened in 1934, a staggering 117,400 visitors came to see the world’s most modern zoological park, with innovative bar-less exhibits housing animals from around the world. Join colleagues at a relaxed ”bring your own lunch” session for a fascinating look at the zoo through the eyes of Carla Owens and Douglas Deuchler, co-authors of Brookfield Zoo and the Chicago Zoological Society. Historic art deco buildings, WPA artwork, and unusual creatures inhabiting the zoo over its 77-year history will be featured. A book signing will follow.
