New book explores history of the Loop

WGN Weekend Morning News

It’s hard to imagine what Chicago’s downtown would look like without the Loop, and the elevated train tracks that define it.

A new book out this week explores the little-known history of the Loop and how it shaped the city, both geographically and culturally. Patrick Reardon, the author of “The Loop — The L Tracks That Shaped and Saved Chicago” is a Chicago native and worked as a reporter at the Chicago Tribune for 32 years.

He joined WGN Weekend Morning News to talk about his new book that makes its debut on Thanksgiving day.
