Author Remembers And Reimagines Chicago's Back of The Yards

This week in the First Light look around the state, Illinois Public Radio’s Dan Klefstad continues his series of interviews of local authors. "Chicago Bound" is a collection of stories about a south side neighborhood near the stockyards. Author Sandra Colbert grew up there in the 1950s and 60s, and each story was inspired by a person or event from her childhood. Dan talked with Sandra about the old neighborhood, but first she read part of a story called 'About a Love.'
