Author Reading: Kenan Heise

 

title

Saturday, December 8, 4 p m, Community Meeting Room, Main Library

Author and retired Chicago Tribune reporter Kenan Heise reads from his lastest work The Book of the Poor: Who They Are, What They Say, and How to End Their Poverty.  Culled from 50 years of his published interviews with the poor and destitute, this stirring and sobering oral history discusses the lasting result of Reaganomics, the importance of minimum wage, and the relationship between the media and the poor while providing concrete steps to ending poverty in America.  Mr. Heise will take questions and sign books following the reading, and copies of The Book of the Poor will be available to purchase.

Kenan Heise is an award-winning author and journalist as well as an inductee into the Chicago Journalism Hall of Fame. He served as a Tribune editor and chief obituary writer for 34 years and is the author of 25 books including Chaos, Creativity, and Culture: A Sampling of Chicago in the 20th Century. He has taught writing at Columbia College and DePaul University and owned Chicago Historical Bookworks in Evanston for nearly 20 years. He lives in Chicago.
