Writer’s Voice with Francesca Rheannon

We talk with Laura Kaplan about her book, “Jane: The Women of the Legendary Underground Feminist Abortion Service.” It’s about how a group of ordinary women worked together to create the women-centered, women-empowering organization called Jane that operated in Chicago from 1969 to 1973.

But first, another Chicago story about organizing for justice. We talk with former Chicago Alderwoman and community activist Helen Shiller about her memoir, “Daring To Struggle, Daring to Win: Five Decades of Resistance in Chicago’s Uptown Community.” How Shiller waged her fights for social justice from University of Wisconsin-Madison to the streets of Chicago’s working class Uptown community and then as an elected official forms the fascinating story she tells in her new book.

Tidings from Hazel Kahan

This month’s guest is Aanchal Malhotra, speaking to us from Delhi in India. Aanchal is the author of a very beautiful book, “Remnants of Partition: 21 Objects from a Continent Divided.” It’s beautiful because of the wonderful photographs heading each of the 21 chapters, because of the writing and, perhaps most of all, beautiful, for the idea of remnants — the objects carried by those fleeing from either side of the newly created border that partitioned India in 1947 — and the power they have to tell a story we might not otherwise hear.
