Chicago is a city that loves stories, especially those about itself. But Chicago’s story is bigger than what can fit onto the bestseller lists and into gangster flicks. One small, independent publisher in town is building a catalog that tells the stories behind and beyond Chicago’s headlines. Sure, sure, Capone. It’s been done. For Emily Victorson, owner of Allium Press, bringing the everyday lives of people to the fore is the true Chicago way.
