Jan 2, 2020

Thursday on Lake Effect:

Journalist and author Alex Kotlowitz talks about his newest book on the impact of gun violence in Chicago. Then, author Paul Hendrickson admits that architect Frank Lloyd Wright wasn’t a very nice person — but his new book implores you to take a deeper look at Wright's career. And although global information systems have brought a wealth of information to our fingertips, but there’s still so much that’s unknown.


  • Alex Kotlowitz, journalist and author of An American Summer: Love and death in Chicago
  • Paul Hendrickson, author of Plagued By Fire: The Dreams and Furies of Frank Lloyd Wright
  • Dylan Thuras, co-founder and artistic director of Atlas Obscura
