WHY ATTENDING THE CHICAGO LITERARY HALL OF FAME IS A MUST-DO:
“I’m a writer and a lifelong fan of literature,” said the Hall of Fame’s Executive Director Don Evans. “It’s embedded in my life. I’d been living in London and done the tour of all the great literary sites, and came back and realized there isn’t much here. Chicago is a great cultural scene. We have Harold Washington Library, The Cultural Center, and there’s so much being done, but when you walk around and try to connect the Chicago of today with the literature of the past there’s not much there. “The ceremony itself is the main attraction for the general public, but, according to Evans, the conversations that take place during the nomination and selection processes are equally valuable nuggets of literary importance that serve to shed light on the works of past greats whether or not those names make it into the Hall of Fame.”
