Inside The Blanket Fort - Episode 146
Journey back Inside The Blanket Fort as we continue our conversations with authors at this year's Printers Row Lit Fest in Chicago.
This week, we’ll hear from Sean Farrell, coauthor of The Irish in Illinois, which he wrote with Mathieu W Billings. Today, over a million people in Illinois claim Irish ancestry and celebrate their love for Ireland. In this concise narrative history, authors Mathieu W. Billings and Sean Farrell bring together both familiar and unheralded stories of the Irish in Illinois, highlighting the critical roles these immigrants and their descendants played in the settlement and the making of the Prairie State.
