“People are hungry for stories. It’s part of our very being. Storytelling is a form of history, of immortality too. It goes from one generation to another.” -Studs Terkel

CFA is excited to celebrate Archives Month throughout October with Chicago area libraries, archives, and museums during Chicago Open Archives (COA), Chicago Area Archivists’ annual event. This year’s theme is “Hidden Stories in the Archives.” Along with behind-the-scenes tours and lectures, Chicago Area Archives is highlighting special spotlight events where you can collect clue sheets and play an online trivia game in November. Check out the calendar on CAA’s website for more information. What hidden stories will you find and what stories will you tell?

CFA will be screening a selection of films that represent the archive’s breadth of material on Wednesday, October 11th from 5:30-7pm at the archive office. More information about our after work social and all of the other events being offered by participating archives is at
Hope to see you at CFA or one of the other events!
