Wed, Sep 18 2013 - 6:00pm

Bruce Kraig, Professor Emeritus, Roosevelt University 
Patty Carroll, Adjunct Professor of Photography, School of the Art Institute of Chicago

Hot dogs are as American as apple pie, but how did these little links become icons of U.S. culture? The new book, Man Bites Dog: Hot Dog Culture in America, explores the transformation of hot dogs from street fare to paradigms of regional expression, social mobility and democracy. Hot dog scholar Kraig and photographic artist Carroll explore the history, people, decor and venues that make up hot dog culture in America.

Come and enjoy a hot dog from Caspers Famous Hot Dogs®.
