A true â€˜thrillerâ€™ in every sense of the word!
Local writer Erik Larson’s research illuminates the genius behind the innovative 1893 Chicago â€˜World Columbian Expositionâ€™.
Daniel H. Burnham, architect of the fair, was responsible for the construction of the famous â€˜White Cityâ€™ around which the fair was built. There were numerous obstacles, including the death of this partner, that had to be overcome.
At the time the Exposition was going on another sort of genius was busy in Chicago as well â€“ serial murderer, H.H. Holmes, was entrapping young women in his home and executing them in a sealed room while he watched them die.
Larson weaves these two stories together as skillfully as any novelist, but the difference here is that these two stories really happened.
See you in the stacks!
