Ann Durkin Keating – The World of Juliette Kinzie

In The World of Juliette Kinzie, Ann Durkin Keating brings to life one of Chicago’s forgotten female founders: Juliette Kinzie. Keating traces the story of Kinzie, who defied gender expectations to become a prolific writer of Chicago history, including two book-length histories of the city, two novels, and an immense body of letters. In this Meet the Author event, Keating will explain how her book offers a new perspective on Chicago’s past while providing a fitting tribute to one of the first women historians in the United States.
