The 13th Annual Cavalcade of Authors Tour in Chicago is showing you that authors are out of this world. Begin the weekend with dinner at Aloft Chicago Center City Hotel, situated in the heart of downtown Chicago. Start Saturday with brunch, and then follow that with a trip to Adler Planetarium and Navy Pier (Bus 1) or DuSable Museum (Bus 2). Later, come dressed up in your most outrageous outfit for the Planetary Ball at Room 43 in Bronzeville. End the weekend with an inspirational Sunday brunch at the Aloft. The Cavalcade of Authors is the ultimate event where readers and book clubs tour Chicago with their favorite authors. Join us for a weekend of private dinners, intimate chats, dancing, games, and so much more.
