Kyle Beachy with Bing Liu: The Most Fun Thing

Title:
Kyle Beachy with Bing Liu: The Most Fun Thing
Description:

For Chicago novelist and creative writing professor Kyle Beachy (The Slide), skateboarding isn’t just a fun pastime he picked up as a kid. It’s also a way to understand and write about his life—from growing older to navigating marriage. In his essay collection The Most Fun Thing, Beachy delves into what skateboarding means to him and its place in contemporary American life. Join Beachy and filmmaker Bing Liu (Minding the Gap) at CHF for a conversation about the increasingly popular sport, the lessons skateboarding can teach us, and what it means to continue practicing a childhood passion.
