Inside The Blanket Fort - Episode 147 (10/12/23) Printers Row Lit Fest

Journey back Inside The Blanket Fort as we continue our conversations from the Chicago Printers Row Lit Fest.

Printers Row brings together publishers of all sizes, independent authors and poets, bookstores, and more to celebrate a shared love of books. This week, we’ll hear from the last author interviewed at Printers Row: Larry A. McClellan, who wrote Onward to Chicago: Freedom Seekers and the Underground Railroad in Northeastern Illinois, one of SIU Press’s newest releases.

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.
