Thursday on Lake Effect: Best of Books

Thursday on Lake Effect:

Some believe self-segregation is the cause of racial divides in American cities, but we learn about a new book that explores the many ways the government created these divides. Then we speak with St. Louis based journalist Sara Kendzior, whose book of essays predicted the rise of Donald Trump as early as 2012.

  • Richar Rothstein, author, Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America
  • Sarah Kendzior, author, The View From Flyover Country
  • Leif Enger, author, Virgil Wander
