Whether as a novelist (Refiner's Fire, Winter's Tale, A Soldier of the Great War, Memoir From Antproof Case, and Freddy and Fredericka), a children's book author with Chris Van Allsberg (Swan Lake, A City in Winter, and The Veil of Snows), a short story writer for the New Yorker, or as an editorial writer for the Wall Street Journal, Mark Helprins sculpted prose, lyrical bent, and provocative ideas have made him an essential read for more than 30 years. Helprin discusses both his new novel, In Sunlight and in Shadow, and his career with the Chicago Tribune's James Janega.
This program is presented in partnership with the Chicago Tribune's Printers Row Live! series.
Trib Nation Manager James Janega is involved in the Chicago Tribune’s growth as an interactive, 21st-century news organization.
