We are thrilled to welcome Gerry Lekas a longtime Chicago guy. He will entertain us with fascinating stories after a delightful lunch.

As a boy from the Northwest Side, his goals were to

  • compose a song that would be featured in a Hollywood movie (✓)
  • write a play that would be performed (✓)
  • create games that made it to the market (✓)
  • one day be able to find a book he had written on a library shelf (✓).

Gerry once a longtime teacher, is a man with a great sense of humor and a love for people. He will make you smile as you get to know him. He will tell us about his debut book Where the Tour Buses Don't Go: Chicago's Hidden Sites of the Mysterious, Macabre, Ghostly & Glamorous. We promise you will be happy you joined us and go away with new tidbits to share with your friends and family.

Please RSVP by this Friday, June 2 to Sallie Smith.
