Inspired by the Past: Writing Chicago Historical Fiction
Volumes Bookcafe, Thursday, June 9 at 7pm
Join Allium Press of Chicago authors Frances McNamara, D. M. Pirrone, and Mary Burns—who all write historical fiction set in Chicago—for a lively conversation about why they think Chicago is such a rich and dramatic setting for historical fiction, moderated by Don Evans of the Chicago Literary Hall of Fame.

FRANCES MCNAMARA is the author of the Emily Cabot mystery series, which is largely set in 1890s Chicago—Death at the Fair, Death at Hull House, Death at Pullman, Death at Woods Hole, Death at Chinatown, and Death at the Paris Exposition.

D. M. PIRRONE is the author of three novels, No Less in Blood, Shall We Not Revenge, and For You Were Strangers. The latter two are the first two novels in the Hanley & Rivka Mysteries series, which is set in Chicago right after the Great Chicago Fire of 1871.

MARY BURNS is the author of four novels, two short-story collections, a non-fiction book about snow geese, and several radio and stage plays. Her newest title is The Reason for Time, a historical novel set in Chicago during the turbulent summer of 1919. (emvic)
