Novelist Audrey Niffenegger (Her Fearful Symmetry et al) will join collector Richard Harris for a discussion about Harris's "Morbid Curiosity" exhibit, which runs through July 7 at the Chicago Cultural Center. Moderated by Lanny Silverman, curator of the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events, Audrey Niffenegger + Richard Harris = Morbid Curiosity will touch on, among other topics, the "cabinets of curiosity (also known as a 'kunsthammer' or 'wunderkammer'), which are the home version precursor to what are now called museums." Registration is required. —Kevin Warwick
