Lecture followed by signing. Chicago's loyalty to Marshall Field's is fierce. When "Marshall Field's" was retired in 2006 after the stores were purchased by Macy's, protest slogans like"Field's is Chicago," and "Field's: as Chicago as it gets," weren't just emotional hype.  Preceded by a rally for Field's at 1 pm. Many still hope that Field's will be resurrected like the city it helped support during the Great Fire and the Great Depression. Until then, fans of Field's can celebrate its history with this book's warm look back at the beloved institution.
