Celebrate great stories in a year full of plot twists.
Each year, the Chicago Public Library Foundation honors the artists who bring great stories to life—those who challenge us, inspire us, and help us see the world in ways we never knew possible. On Wednesday, December 9 at 6:30 p.m. CST every Library lover is invited to tune in via livestream for the very first virtual Chicago Public Library Foundation Awards celebration.
Legendary Chicago newscaster Bill Kurtis will join us once again as our host, and the evening’s centerpiece will be an intimate conversation with our Sandburg Award honoree led by best-selling author and National Public Radio host Scott Simon.
Register now, and enter to win a collection of Donna LaPietra, Nate Marshall, and Isabel Wilkerson’s book picks!
