SHARE "The Fire No One Can Forget"

John Kuenster was working at the Chicago Daily News the day of the fire.

He recently talked with us about his newest work, Remembrances of the Angels. It features memories of students, teachers, and firefighters who were there: memories that seem impossible to erase. Again, be warned that some descriptions in this conversation are disturbing.
