Studs Terkel was an American icon who had no use for America’s cult of celebrity, an eminent oral historian and leftist supporter of radical causes, and an actor, writer, and radio host who, in scores of books and broadcasts, paid respect to “ordinary” human beings of all classes and colors as they talked about their lives. Studs Terkel: Politics, Culture, But Mostly Conversation by oral historian and author Alan Wieder is the first comprehensive book about the man and his work. Drawing from over one hundred interviews of people who knew and worked with Terkel, 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.
A Cappella Books will have copies of Studs Terkel available for purchase and signing following the program. This event is free and open to the public.
