The Chicago Literary Hall of Fame is holding a gala to celebrate the presentation of the first Fuller Award to Barrington writer Gene Wolfe. Peter Sagal, host of NPR’s news quiz show ‘Wait Wait … Don’t Tell Me!” will be the toastmaster during dinner, introducing Special Guests as they offer up speeches and toasts in honor of Gene Wolfe. Master of Ceremonies for the evening will be Gary K. Wolfe, Professor of Humanities and English at Roosevelt University and award-winning editor and critic.
Tickets will be sold in advance for $150. We expect 200 guests—a mix of young and old, writers and patrons of the arts. Each guest will receive a Commemorative Program that will include statements of congratulations from our Special Guests and from other famous writers and notable persons who are not able to attend: including Larry Niven, John Clute, Harlan Ellison, and Ursula Le Guin. This Program is sure to become a collectible, and you can be a part of it!
