Audrey Petty, editor of High Rise Stories, and several narrators of the accounts from the collection will read from and discuss this crucial work. Featured as one of 57th Street Books' 20 Best Books of 2013, High Rise Stories is an important document, providing vivid insight into a chapter of our city's history that affects us to this day.
In the gripping first-person accounts of High Rise Stories, former residents of Chicago's iconic public housing projects describe life in the now-demolished high-rises. These stories of community, displacement, and poverty in the wake of gentrification give voice to those who have long been ignored, but whose hopes and struggles exist firmly at the heart of our national identity.
