Moving story of the December 1958 fire in Our Lady of the Angels elementary school in Chicago that killed 92 children and 3 nuns. Cowan and Kuenster researched this story for years, interviewing survivors, talking with other witnesses and experts, and unearthing documents in order to reconstruct a minute-by-minute narrative of the tragedy and the sorrows of its aftermath. Describes the fear, desperation, and panic that prevailed among children, teachers, firefighters, and parents in and around the school on a cold Monday afternoon almost 40 years ago. Like all disasters of this magnitude, safety standards were changed, a community was forever affected, and survivors still live with the effects.
