The April May edition of Illinois Heritage showcases features by our favorite writers—”Forgotten Voices of Illinois History” (John Hallwas), “Women Artists in Illinois, (Kristan H. McKinsey), “The Lincoln Collection” (James Cornelius), “Historical Headlines” (Mark Sorensen)—but also some new contributors who cast their spotlights on places and people and events in Illinois that deserve our attention. Thanks to Juliene McCormick, Mike Matejka, and Dean Karau for sharing their resources and talents.

Illinois Heritage, March–April 2018

Volume 21, Number 2

Elaine Evans 0 4182

This March–April issue of Illinois Heritage highlights the recognition of thirty Illinois churches and synagogues that have been in continuous fellowship for 150 years or more. Currently, more than 200 churches and synagogues have been recognized by the ISHS.

The Bicentennial Year is well underway with many special events planned by local historical societies, libraries, government agencies and other community organizations. As an individual, consider reading one or more books listed in the Illinois Classics: A Bicentennial Reading List, a twelve-month reading list that includes novels, nonfictional works, and poetry, all by Illinois authors and expressive of the Illinois experience. 

This issue expresses not only the variety of interests in the state, but what is important at different periods in our state’s history.
