CLHOF Backyard Appreciation Party with Anne-Marie Akin
Sunday, August 6, 2023
Oak Park, IL
The Chicago Literary Hall of Fame survives and thrives because of our wonderful army of supporters, including volunteers, board members, associate board members, our advisory council, and donors. Throughout the year, speakers and writers and educators and administrators lend their time to our various programs. Our regular independent contractors, such as printers and designers, go above and beyond the call of duty. We are only here because of the enormous generosity and talent of these people. Least we could do is throw them a party. We're going to gather in an Oak Park backyard (please, weather, be with us) for food, drink, song and fellowship. Anne-Marie Akin, who ranks among this army of saints, is going to play several sets of her superb music.
As a bonus, we will unveil the first-ever CLHOF Literary Citizen of the Year Award. (Well, we're still working on the name, but the idea is: our community's most deserving volunteer).
This is an invite-only party, so look for your special invitation as we near the party date.
