New Illinois books to look forward to!

It's not every day, or even every week, that I get to order two promising new books about Illinois -- one from an old friend, one from a new one:

James Krohe Jr., Corn Kings and One-Horse Thieves: A Plain-Spoken History of Mid-Illinois (Carbondale: Southern Illinois University Press, 2017),  $29.50

Darcie Hind Posz, The Chicago Stones: A Genealogy of Acquisition, Influence and Scandal (, 2017), $14.99

(And a hat tip to Barbara
Mathews for posting about
the Stones book on Facebook!)

Thanks for the heads-up on Darcie's book. Just ordered and I can't wait to read it!
