The Chicago Tribune's "Chicago Forward: Conversations about the Future" is a series of live gatherings of politicians and newsmakers exploring issues of importance to the local community. On April 20th, the Tribune will host a special "Chicago Forward" which will feature an open conversation with Mayor-Elect Rahm Emanuel.
This is set to take place just a few weeks before Emanuel's inauguration as the 46th mayor of Chicago on May 16th, 2011. The host and moderator will be the Chicago Tribune Editorial Page Editor Bruce Dold. Dold will present a long list of questions for Rahm Emanuel, and will take questions from the audience in attendance.
The live event will be held at the James Simpson Theater of The Field Museum, located at 1400 S. Lake Shore Drive in Chicago, on Wednesday, April 20, at 6:00pm.
Tickets for this one-night-only program are only $10. They can be purchased online at this link HERE
or by phone by calling 312-222-3348. The ticket price includes a post-event reception with food and drink, hosted by City Club of Chicago.
Bruce Dold said this week: "Chicago Forward is a series of dialogues about the topics that the people in our city and state tell us are important to them. Throughout its history, the Tribune has asked hard questions, delivered news and engaged in a conversation with its readers. We now add live events to print, online, and mobile as ways we interact with the community. We are delighted to offer Chicagoans the chance to ask Mayor-elect Emanuel their questions as he prepares to take office."
In other "Chicago Forward" news, the event called "A Healthy Chicago" that was scheduled for early February, but called off due to the blizzard at that time, has been rescheduled. It will now be held on May 12th at the Murphy Auditorium of the American College of Surgeons, located at 50 E. Erie Street in Chicago. Dr. Mehmet Oz, best known as the host of "The Dr. Oz Show," will be joined by Dr. Eric Whitaker, Executive Vice President of the University of Chicago Medical Center, and Donna Thompson, CEO of Access Community Health at the event.
