Natalie Moore, author of “The South Side” Coming to 826CHI

January 27th—

Ta-Nehisi Coates calls WBEZ reporter Natalie Moore’s The South Side "essential to anyone attempting to understand race in Chicago, our most American of cities," and the Chicago Reader says it's “a vital corrective when the dominant media narrative of the south side is one of violence and despair.”

Now you can see firsthand the insights that have everyone talking! WBEZ's Natalie Moore is reading at the Wicker Park Secret Agent Supply Co. on Monday, February 27th. This event is FREE and open to the public, and you can even pick up a copy of the book at the Secret Agent Supply now. RSVP on our Facebook event page>>

Our Teen Press Corps shared another interview from last summer's Pitchfork Music Festival, this time conversing with Chicago footwork pioneer RP Boo. To learn about the empowering effect of footwork, the art of sampling, and how it feels to watch an underground movement grow, read on at McSweeney's, and stop by the Wicker Park Secret Agent Supply Co. for your very own copy of our students' collection of music writing, And the Rest is Noise.
