Title: Berwyn author's book released this month
Author: Nick Vogel
A book by Berwyn resident Frank Magallon about Chicago's Little Village was released April 19.
Titled "Chicago's Little Village Lawndale-Crawford," the book is a picture-based history of Little Village, the Chicago neighborhood just east of Cicero.
Formerly known as the Lawndale-Crawford neighborhood, Little Village's history is intricately linked to Berwyn and Cicero.
"Many, many of the area residents are from there," said Magallon. "From the past hundred years, both Bohemian-Czech (and) Polish, now Mexicans have all traveled west from that neighborhood (to) Berwyn."
Magallon said the book is available at bookstores everywhere and online at arcadiapublishing.com. --MySuburbanLife.com
