Got a soapbox? Get on it at the Bughouse Square Debates, held in historic Washington Square Park, which for the better half of the 20th century was "the most celebrated free speech center in the nation," per the Encyclopedia of Chicago; prepare to heckle and be heckled. Study up on your topic by perusing the 110,000 donated books in 70 categories, many priced under $2, on offer at the Newberry's annual book fair.
