Inside The Blanket Fort - Episode 134 (7/6/23)

Journey back Inside The Blanket Fort as we turn our focus on a group of books that recently won honors at the Illinois State Historical Society’s Best of Illinois History Awards.

In late April the ISHS honored 30-plus recipients for 2023. SIU Press took home a total of seven awards, including the Russell P. Strange Book of the Year award, six of the nine awards given in the “Books, Scholarly” category, and one award in “Books, Other.”
