Synopsis: Arguably the century's most gifted chronicler of what Americans really think, Studs Terkel has been called "a national resource. . . who gets to the deeper heart of our history and our national life" by John Kenneth Galbraith. Terkel's widely praised, best-selling books Hard Times, Working, Race, and the Pulitzer Prize-winning "The Good War" probe the innermost attitudes in this country toward the Great Depression, work, race, and World War II.

About the Author: ALLEN HAMILTON has worked in regional theaters throughout the country?in Minneapolis, Boston, Arizona, Los Angeles, Chicago, St. Louis and Washington D.C. He has appeared on Broadway and London's West End. He has acted in dozens of television movies and feature films.

STUDS TERKEL (1912-2008) was a free spirit, an outspoken populist, a Pulitzer Prize-winning author, a terrible ham, and one of the best-loved characters on the American scene. Born in New York in 1912, he lived in Chicago for over eight decades.
