Alex Burkholder Appearance

Thanks so much to Robert Feder for the mention of our latest book, and our latest author. It was in his column this morning...

Saturday marks the 60th anniversary of the infamous fire at Our Lady of the Angels School on the West Side that took the lives of 92 children and three nuns. It’s also the release date of Death of the Angels: The Why of a Tragedy, a new book about the disaster written by Alex Burkholder, a former Chicago television investigative producer who worked closely with the late news anchor John Drury. Published by Rick Kaempfer and David Stern’s Eckhartz Press, it includes the stories of survivors and firemen who fought the blaze. Burkholder will discuss the book at a signing at 10 a.m. Saturday at the Robert J. Quinn Fire Academy, 558 West DeKoven Street.
