I Remember Book Launch and Segment

Yesterday marked ninety-seven years since the signing of the Armistice with Germany, and along with it the U.S. observance of Veterans Day.

Big Shoulders Books helped commemorate the holiday with the official launch of I Remember: Chicago Veterans of War, an anthology of service men and women's memories. At the event, veterans read their inspiring stories from I Remember for an intimate audience visibly moved by the speakers in front of them.

Along with the event,  I Remember's editor, Chris Green, was featured on WTTW's "Chicago Tonight." In the segment, Chris, along with contributors Gilbert Elenbogen and Rolando Zavala, discuss how the inspiration for the anthology and the importance of providing veterans a space to share their experiences.

Everyone from Big Shoulders Books would like to once again express our heartfelt gratitude and admiration for veterans. We thank them not only for their service but also for the power of their stories.
