Last week: Neal Gillen

February 7th

Last Week: Neal Gillen, the author of nine novels, gave us a dramatic recollection of the topic of his latest book: Chicago 1968: Personal Reflections & Other Stories. Gillen described the tragic events of 1968, including the rising death toll in Viet Nam, the assassination of Martin Luther King—and the following rioting. During the summer of 1968, Gillen participated in the backroom negotiations after the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy and the nomination of Hubert Humphrey at the Democratic National Convention. He described a pivotal meeting between Humphrey and Chicago Mayor Richard Daley, conducted at the convention center while a riot was going on outside. A fascinating presentation!
