Corn Kings on Kindle; The Urbanologist interview
Readers who prefer to do their reading of history on e-devices should know that my book from SIU Press, Corn Kings and One-Horse Thieves, is now available in a Kindle edition.
Also, a nice thing happened the other day. Max Grinnell, a writer-teacher-consultant on city issues who writes The Urbanologist blog, ran across the book at Prairie Archives while in town to give a talk at Lincoln Library on "Reinventing Downtown With Public Art."
Alert readers might recall Grinnell as the subject of a http://www.sj-r.com/article/20150117/NEWS/150119526tmp_1504127666862 in the SJR back in 2015, after a previous visit to Springfield.
Anyway, He loved it, and, curious to know more about it and me, interviewed me by email for his blog. The interview, and bit more, appears at http://theurbanologist.com/post/164750771601/a-conversation-about-corn-kings-one-horse
