In its heyday, when debates raged in Bughouse Square and ideas bounced about the Dil Picke Club, Chicago's Gold Coast featured a wide array of vibrant, joyous, and culturaly significant literary spots. Even today, the Gold Coast is home to a variety of world class literary insitutions, inluding the Poetry Foundation and Newberry Library. As we visit these places we'll discuss their history and significance, while meandering through stretches that include other interesting literary sites, such as the former location of the Playboy mansion.
