From chart-topping radio hits ("You're Sixteen") to award-winning Disney movie songs ("Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious") and beloved theme park classics ("It's a Small World"), Richard M. Sherman is one of the most prolific and acclaimed family-friendly song composers of all time. The Sherman Brothers songwriting duo, comprised of Richard M. Sherman and his late brother, Richard B. Sherman, was a veritable two-man Disney hit factory, crafting memorable melodies for numerous films including Mary Poppins, The Jungle Book, Winnie the Pooh, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and many more. Over the course of their nearly half-century songwriting career, the brothers were honored with two Academy Awards (for the music of Mary Poppins), three Grammy Awards and 24 gold and platinum albums. This conversation at Goodman Theatre, moderated by Chicago Tribune critic Chris Jones, takes a look back at Sherman's astonishing career and achievements. Along with the illuminating discussion, you'll also be treated to a light breakfast buffet reception plus an exclusive sampling of some of Sherman's unforgettable songs. Learn More

This event was GREAT fun! The interviewer, Tim Barbash, asked some good questions & was definitely up to the task of doing this interview. Chuck Palahniuk being who he is, we expected that he might be interesting & a little "out there" (but in a good way). Even with that expectation we were not prepared for all of the hilarity & his antics. He brought 50 stuffed Tigers that he passed out as rewards for audience members correctly answering trivia questions about his books. CP's answers to questions were thoughtful and yet spiced with the oddities and ironies that make him such a readable and outstanding author. We had a fantastic time!

Chuck is fantastic, he put on a great show.
The way this event was set up was not organized or clear. We could barely hear the speakers because the PA was set too low. It wasn't clear when or where the book signing was and then they made an announcement right at 7pm saying that they would only be selling presigned copies in the lobby. If I had gone to this event to get a book signed I would have been really disappointed. It felt like a bait and switch.
