CBC November 12, 2014 General Membership Meeting
from 75.00

Multiple Emmy award-winning Public Television writer, producer and program host Geoffrey Baer is known for his masterful storytelling, conversational style, and contagious enthusiasm.

Geoffrey is most familiar to Chicago audiences for his popular feature-length TV specials about Chicago architecture and history, including Chicago’s Loop:  A New Walking Tour, Chicago’s Lakefront, Chicago by Boat:  the New River Tour, The Foods of Chicago:  A Delicious History (nominated for a James Beard Award), and Chicago by “L”: Touring the Neighborhoods, as well as six programs covering virtually all of Chicago’s suburban areas.

Geoffrey also appears weekly on WTTW’s flagship nightly news program Chicago Tonight, answering viewers’ questions about Chicago architecture and history in a segment called Ask Geoffrey.

Nationally he hosted the PBS primetime special Ten Buildings that Changed America, which debuted in May of 2013 and is currently traveling the country filming a three-part PBS series about homes, parks and towns that change America.  Other programs seen nationally include documentaries about acclaimed international architects Robert A. M. Stern and Michael Graves and Saved from the Wrecking Ball, a documentary about the rescue of Mies van der Rohe’s Farnsworth House.

Join us on Wednesday, November 12, 2014 for lunch as Goeffrey enlightens our group with his vast knowledge of Architecture, and the Construction Industry.
