We all know about H. H. Holmes, Jack the Ripper, and other monstrous serial killers of the Victorian Era, but what many of us don't know is that was merely the beginning. As surely as Miesian skyscrapers ascended after WWII did the second "school" of Chicago Serial Killers emerge from the shockwaves created by the modern era.

Join historian and entertainer Clarence Goodman for "A Killer Among Us: Fiends, Stalkers, and Creeps in Chicago's Modern Age."


Join us on Saturday August 26th at 2:00PM to see “A Hundred Years Ago on the Homefront” by Ellie Presents...!

A reluctant but energetic America entered the Great War in 1917. We sent our sons. We rationed our bread. We stopped wearing corsets to save the steel for warships…and we wrote and sang the songs that rallied the troops.  The music, food, patriotic pastimes and tragic losses were things that every American family knew. This war ushered in what came to be known as The American Century. What did it feel, sound and taste like to be there?  Travel back in time to the Homefront.

GERD or Acid Reflux is uncomfortable. Join us Thursday, August 31st at 6:00PM!
If you experience: more than occasional heartburn, regurgitation, difficulty swallowing, chest pain, or, if you take medication for these symptoms routinely...

You should find out about the risks and new treatments available!

Handwriting Analysis, or "Graphology" is the study of handwriting to reveal the character or personality traits of the writer. The principle behind graphology is that people who share certain character and personality traits also exhibit similar shapes and forms in their handwriting.

Join us while Chris Mc’Brien entertains us with this fascinating science!  He will only go as deep as to amaze guests and leave them in awe of it's accuracy, all while explaining many of his methods.



Thursday, September 28,  6:00pm-8:00pm

Dreams provide an infinite amount of power, wisdom and healing. Join us as we explore the depths of our subconscious through dreams. What are your dreams trying to tell you? Do you have problems remembering your dreams? Are your dreams vivid & recurring? What's a bad dream? Our dream analysis expert will help you shed some light on these common questions and provide participants with dream interpretations during the workshop.
