The Day Carl Sandburg Died

by Chad Campbell, senior producer

Bob speaks with Paul Bonesteel, writer, editor and director of the film The Day Carl Sandburg Died which tells the life story of the populist poet. Sandburg was known for bringing Chicago, “the city of the big shoulders,” to life in his writings and for his close associations with socialism. Carl Sandburg won two Pulitzer Prizes for his poetry, and one for his multi-volume biography of Abraham Lincoln. The documentary premieres Monday on PBS’ American Masters series.
