Coming November 2014: A concise history of Marina City based on nine years of research and photography by writer, acclaimed architecture photographer (this photo is one of his), and full-time Marina City resident Steven Dahlman (one of his stunning photos to the left). Dahlman, also editor ofMarina City Online and Loop North News, says this about his home: ”The story of Chicago’s Marina City does not end in the 1960s. After it was built, people moved in –and kept the story going through good times and bad. Marina City is a riches-to-rags-to-riches story. It may be an important part of Chicago’s past but it is still relevant today. It is not just a Chicago icon. It is Chicago.” For a sneak peek at the type of thing you’ll find in the book, visit Dahlman’s online Marina City History. And, for instant visual gratification, visit our Marina City Pinterest board here or Dahlman’s own photography site.
The first release of EGM’s new imprint, S. Woodhouse Books, went to the printer yesterday: Dale W. Laackman’s For the Kingdom and the Power: The Big Money Swindle That Spread Hate Across America. It’s a shocking story you’ve never heard that epitomizes the promises and perils of the emerging communications industry…In 1920s America, a force of nature and her flim-flam man meet their mark–a true believer. An audacious long con begins that will soon reach every corner of the U.S. and its halls of power.
An excellent, thoughtful, and 4-star review was posted today, 4/21/2014, at Chicago Book Review for Graveyards of Chicago.
