Description:
 Blues history is steeped in Chicago's sidewalks; it floats out of its restaurants, airport lounges and department stores. Let Rosalind Cummings-Yeates, author of "Exploring Chicago Blues: Inside the Scene, Past and Present," take you inside the Checkerboard and Gerri's Palm Tavern, where folks like Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Willie Dixon and Ma Rainey transformed Chicago into the blues mecca. Explore the contemporary blues scene and discover the best spots to hear the purest sounds of Sweet Home Chicago. The Book Table will sell books.
