Induction Ceremony (Class of 2019 & 20)

Sunday, September 19, 2021
6:30-7:45 p.m.

City Lit Theater
1020 W. Bryn Mawr Ave.
Chicago, IL 60660

In this, our 11th season, the Chicago Literary Hall of Fame will induct and honor two new classes, the 2019 class (we postponed last year's ceremony due to the pandemic) and the 2020 class (selection always happens the year preceding the ceremony). Frank London Brown, Jeanette Howard Foster, and Carlos Cortez represent the 2019 class, along with Gene Wolfe, who, as a former Fuller Award honoree, gained automatic induction upon his death. Two authors will be named shortly to represent the newest class, and bring the pantheon of Chicago's most extraordinary literary contributors to 54. The program will feature short presentations and performances on the life and work of each inductee, as well as short speeches from living descendents. The event is free and open to the public. City Lit Theater, a 99-seat venue, will fill up quickly, so we recommend advance registration to guarantee your place. The registration link will be made available shortly, along with the announcement of the new class.
