Thomas Dyja lecture, “The Third Coast”

Lily Reid Holt Memorial Chapel

Join Thomas Dyja for the paperback release of his critically-acclaimed book, The Third Coast. His talk is titled, “Beyond Pizza and Big Shoulders: Getting to the Heart of the Third Coast.” 

Chicagoans are proud of their city, with good reason. Author Thomas Dyja will take us past the usual Bests and Biggests and Firsts, toward the Chicago that built the American Dream in ways that have changed the world. 

The book won the Chicago Tribune Heartland Prize and was selected as one of the New York Times 100 Notable Books of 2013, and named one of the Chicago Tribune’s best books of 2013. It will be featured in the upcoming re-release of the Chicagoan.

Dyja’s talk will be the closing event for the Student Symposium. Click here for more information.
