Carlo Rotella and Fred Blackwell on Urban Neighborhoods - Nov. 19th

Carlo Rotella will speak about his new book, which one reviewer called "an urban history with the soul of a memoir." The World is Always Coming to An End: Pulling Together and Apart in a Chicago Neighborhood is a hauntingly personal account of this scholar-journalist's return to Chicago's South Shore neighborhood where he grew up (and also where Michelle Obama grew up). Fred Blackwell, CEO of the San Francisco Foundation, will join him in a discussion. Learn more

University Press Books will have Rotella's book for sale at the event starting at 6:30pm
