Kevin Coval is the founding editor of The BreakBeat Poets imprint on Haymarket Books, & Artistic Director of the MacArthur Award-winning cultural organization, “Young Chicago Authors”. In this episode he discusses his book, “Everything Must Go,” an illustrated poetic retelling of the tales of Chicago’s Wicker Park in the late 1990’s. Though populated by colorful characters and entertaining stories, the book also serves as a template for understanding the process of displacement and reinvention currently reshaping American cities.
