Short History of Oak Park

Let us now praise our own book(s) about Oak Park, the first of which came out this month as The Short History of Oak Park, Volume 1, 2004-2005.  Grandiose name, or barely saved from grandiosity by that fetching “short.”

It’s based on my monthly columns for the Wednesday Journal of Oak Park & River Forest and draws also on my memories (the fond ones) of Oak Park, where I spent the days and years of my life for most of my many, many years.

As it says on the Book Store page of this blog, you can buy this book at, $10 for paperback, download is free.

At this location I have updated the preview so that it includes the first nine pages.  Have a look.
