Book Launch and Signing: Studs Terkel: Politics, Culture, but Mostly Conversation

Please join us for the Chicago book launch and signing of Alan Wieder's Studs Terkel: Politics, Culture, but Mostly Conversation. Speakers include Alan Wieder, Haki Madhubuti, Kathy Kelly and Kevin Coval. Refreshments provided.
Alan Wieder’s Studs Terkel: Politics, Culture, but Mostly Conversation is the first comprehensive book about this man. Drawing from over one hundred interviews of people who knew and worked with Studs, Alan Wieder creates a multi-dimensional portrait of a run-of-the-mill guy from Chicago who, in public life, became an acclaimed author and raconteur, while managing, in his private life, to remain a mensch.
Alan Wieder is an oral historian who lives in Portland, Oregon. He is distinguished professor emeritus at the University of South Carolina and has taught at the University of the Western Cape and Stellenbosch University in South Africa. In the last fifteen years, he has published three books and numerous articles on South Africans who fought against the apartheid regime. The latest book, Ruth First and Joe Slovo in the War Against Apartheid, was published in 2013 by Monthly Review Press.
