Abstract: 
From back cover: "In 2011 and 2012, while more than 900 people were being murdered on the streets of Chicago, creative-writing students from DePaul University fanned out all over the city to interview people whose lives have been changed forever by the bloodshed. The result is this extraordinary and eye-opening book. Told by real people in their own words, the stories inside are at turns harrowing, heartbreaking and full of hope."
Language:

Notes: 
Big Shoulders Books at DePaul aims to produce one book per year that intimately connects DePaul graduate writing students with the local community, and that disseminates writing by and about Chicagoans whose voices might not otherwise be shared. Big Shoulders Books hopes to contribute to discussions of Chicago's injustice and inequality as well as its resilience and creativity. (Adapted from inside the book.)

Another Chicago Magazine Issue 50v2 The Chicago Issue

Catalog Number: 
Journal, Another Chicago Magazine Issue 50v2 The Chicago Issue
Date: 
2012
Volume: 
2
Issue: 
50
Abstract: 
ACM has released its 50th issue, an issue dedicated to our hometown of Chicago. To be perfectly honest, we never thought we’d make it to a 50th issue. ACM has never been known for fundraising skills, financial acumen, or an airtight organizational structure. Mostly we’ve just been known for being independent since 1977 and for publishing young and exciting writers as frequently as we can manage it on a shoestring budget. We like it that way. So when we realized that we were in fact still around and viable and putting out our 49th issue, it struck us that the best way to celebrate that nice, round number was to set about celebrating our roots and publishing a Chicago issue.*

Hiding Out

Date: 
2007
Abstract: 
"Playful and empathetic tales of misguided lonely hearts."
Language: 
English
Notes: 
A few pages throughout the book appear to have accidentally been left out due to printing/typesetting issues--either that, or it's a strange meta-fiction thing? This cataloger subscribes to the former theory.
