Join Jocelyn Green (and special guests!)
on The Windy City Saga Tour!
Chicago, Aug 31- Sept 2, 2023

Join Christy Award-winning author Jocelyn Green for a weekend in Chicago like none other. This will be my third time hosting a Chicago readers trip, and this one promises to be an incredible experience drawing on the best that Chicago and I have to offer historical fiction lovers! (It doesn’t hurt that this time we’ll have the best weather of all, with local temps typically in the low 70s at this time of year.) We’ll explore the city’s rich history through the sites found in Veiled in SmokeShadows of the White City, and Drawn by the Current.

See the itinerary page for full details, but highlights include:

  • A visit from Catherine O’Leary, who is ready to exonerate herself from being blamed for the Great Chicago Fire!
  • Guided walking tour of the famous urban greenspace, Lincoln Park
  • A joint program with Jocelyn Green and the Eastland Disaster Historical Society at the Chicago Maritime Museum
  • Breakfast Book Club with Jocelyn Green AND special guests, bestselling authors Kate Breslin and Laura Frantz
  • Historic building tour and lunch in The Walnut Room at Macy’s (formerly Marshall Field’s)–Kate Breslin and Laura Frantz will be joining us for this too!
  • Visit to the Chicago Cultural Center (the city’s first dedicated public library)
  • Optional: A Novel-Tea Evening with the Authors featuring seven novelists of Christian historical fiction!
