Fuller Award for Scott Turow

Thursday, October 5, 2023

Harold Washington Public Library
Cindy Pritzker Auditorium
400 S. State Street
Chicago, IL 60606

Scott Turow, the acclaimed author of 13 fictional and three non-fiction books, will receive CLHOF's highest honor for living writers, the Fuller Award. The Chicago born and bred bestselling author rocketed onto the literary scene with his debut novel, Presumed Innocent (1987) and has sustained his early, volcanic success these past 35 years, up to and including Shattered (2002). While maintaining a duel career as an attorney and writer, Turow has established a place as a bestselling author of legal thrillers that explore the depths of his imagined world and his characters. 

Details about the speaking lineup forthcoming. The event will be free and open to the public, with a reception to follow the ceremony.

Registration will open this spring.
