As an Emmy Award-winning television reporter during an especially tumultuous time in Chicago history, Peter Nolan has plenty of good stories to tell. His latest book, News Stories: A Memoir
(released in March) includes a vast collection of Chicago characters, including Bears great Sid Luckman, Governor Otto Kerner, columnist Irv Kupcinet, Mayor Harold Washington, and many less-familiar but equally fascinating people.
For this event, Mr. Nolan will be interviewed on stage by Robert Boone, who wrote in his foreword for News Stories: "Peter Nolan may have been a no-nonsense reporter in a no-nonsense city, but at heart he was a great storyteller." Copies of News Stories will be available for purchase and signing at the event.
