A Few Red Drops – with Claire Hartfield

Join us as award-winning author CLAIRE HARTFIELD discusses the major tensions that led to the Chicago Race Riot of 1919, the subject of her critically-acclaimed new book, A FEW RED DROPS. Ms. Hartfield won the 2019 Coretta Scott King Author Award for her book, which Kirkus Reviews described as a “comprehensive, careful account” and Horn Book Magazine praised as a “…readable, compelling history using meticulously chosen archival photos, documents, newspaper clippings,and quotes from multiple primary sources.” As always, we will raffle off FREE copies of the author’s book at the conclusion of the program!
