Join us as we chat with author Jonathan Carr about his astonishing historical novel set in Chicago from 1800 to 1900. Make Me a City begins with a game of chess—and on the outcome of that game hinges the destiny of Chicago. A collection of compelling characters (many with familiar names) witness the expansion of the city, both horizontally and vertically. Their voices deliver the many strands of this novel, which are woven together to create the amazing tapestry that is Chicago.

"The rise of Chicago in the 19th century provides the frame for a trove of colorful stories and characters in this entertaining debut novel. . . .Carr has a sure touch, and in many extended anecdotes, his narrative skills show exceptional detail, pacing, and tension. A solid storyteller enlivens a rich patch of American history." — Kirkus
