Book Tour, Day #1
I came in late last night and I immediately went to a chop house for a steak and martini. In the culinary sense, Chicago is like the Midwestern version of New Orleans. My steak was bathing in juices with two onion rings on the side, and the martini had three olives, all stuffed with blue cheese. Delicious. As I ate I watched a Cubs game, and read through Chicago Magazine, which has a nice mention in its "Noteworthy new releases" section about The Galloping Ghost: "Football wasn't truly football until the coming of Red Grange, one of the most influential Bears players of all time. In The Galloping Ghost, first-time biographer Gary Poole describes the life of Wheaton-raised Grange and his impact on the game, the business, and the popularity of football in our country."
I also recorded an interview at the studios at Chicago Public Radio (WBEZ). The interview will air next week. I am reading at the BookStall tonight.
