On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of his landmark novel “Neuromancer,” CHF favorite William Gibson returns to the Festival. This autumn he’ll celebrate the publication of his latest work, “The Peripheral,” a high-tech thriller set partly in a decadent postapocalyptic future. Gibson is joined in conversation by author Carol Anshaw.
The Chicago Humanities Festival’s mission is to create opportunities for people of all ages to support, enjoy and explore the humanities. We fulfill this mission through our annual festivals, the fall Chicago Humanities Festival and the spring Stages, Sights & Sounds, by presenting programs throughout the year that encourage the study and enjoyment of the humanities, and by providing a rich array of multimedia content online.
