A weekend in the Windy City: you're not in Ada anymore

By Torie Wright, Icon intern

I’m not much of a city girl; I’ve grown quite fond of the quiet intimacy small towns like our own have to offer. After a weekend in Chicago, however, my mind feels subject to change… 

On Nov. 8, I traveled to Chicago with a group of students and professors from OSU-Lima. We went to watch a live, penultimate performance of Shakespeare’s King Lear at the Chicago Shakespeare Theater located on the Navy Pier.
