City of Scoundrels and People Wasn't Made to Burn
This was an event in the University Center’s Lake Room at the 2012 Chicago Tribune Printers Row Lit Fest.
Authors talked about their books about Chicago in 1919 and 1947 with Chicago Tribune literary editor Elizabeth Taylor. They also responded to questions from members of the audience. Gary Krist is the author of City of Scoundrels: The 12 Days of Disaster That Gave Birth to Modern Chicago, and Joe Allen is the author of People Wasn’t Made to Burn: A True Story of Housing, Race, and Murder in Chicago.
