Allium author Mary Burns will join fellow authors Claire Hartfield and Eve Ewing in a panel discussion
on writing about the turbulent summer of 1919 in Chicago.
This summer marks the 100th anniversary of one of Chicago’s most turbulent times, the two weeks between July 21 and August 3, 1919. Numerous significant events happened in a very concentrated time period, most notably the Race Riots of 1919, but also the crash of blimp into a downtown bank, a streetcar conductor strike, and the kidnapping of a young girl. Three authors have taken different approaches to telling the story of that dramatic time period—Mary Burns in her novel The Reason for Time, Eve Ewing in her book of poems 1919, and Claire Hartfield in her work of nonfiction A Few Red Drops. Join them for a conversation exploring how the time period initially caught their attention, how they researched the events and the context in which they occurred, and how they made choices about how to tell the story of that volatile summer.
