Wednesday, March 4
Winnetka Community House, 620 Lincoln Ave.
At two events, one downtown and the other in Winnetka, Chicago historian Sally Kalmbach speaks about her book Mrs. Thorne's World of Miniatures. It's the story of the woman who gained worldwide recognition for the hundreds of miniature rooms she created with such exacting detail that they became educational tools for students of architecture and interior design. The 68 of them that she left to the Art Institute of Chicago have delighted generations of visitors.
