Inside The Blanket Fort - Episode 144 (9/21/23)

Journey back Inside The Blanket Fort as we talk with SIU Press authors featured at this year's Printers Row Lit Fest in Chicago.

We had the pleasure of sharing our tables with several of our authors, who came to sign books and talk with readers. We also took the opportunity to record some on-the-scene interviews of these authors, which we’ll be airing over the next few episodes of Inside the Blanket Fort! First up, in honor of National Hispanic American Heritage Month, is Wilfredo Cruz, author of Latinos in Chicago: Quest for a Political Voice.

Mandi is the author of six published novels, two short fiction collections, and numerous short stories. She earned her BA and MFA in creative writing from SIU.
