Host Rick Kogan welcomes Chicago author Iris Kransnow to join the conversation as she talks about her book, Camp Girls: Fireside Lessons on Friendship, Courage and Loyalty, and the many anecdotes she picked up throughout her young years away at summer camp.

“It is not Utopian. It is a place you are thrust on your own without mommy and daddy. It’s about the core qualities that really sustain you …” Kransnow said.

Find copies of Camp Girls: Fireside Lessons on Friendship, Courage and Loyalty on Audible, Barnes and Nobles and Google Play Books.
