Head and shoulders shot of Rick Kogan wearing glasses with chin resting on folded hands.

Rick Kogan started working as a reporter at the Chicago Sun-Times at the age of 16 and for the past half century has continued to turn out bylines in our city’s most important daily papers. Among his dozen nonfiction books, Rick’s true crime story, Everybody Pays: Two Men, One Murder and the Price of Truth, co-authored with Maurice Possley, stands out as a classic. He has served as an on-line reporter, commentator and host for a variety of television and radio outlets, including his current Sunday WGN-720 AM show, After Hours. In addition, Rick is a constant presence in Chicago’s cultural community, serving as impressario and interviewer for major events at the Printers Row Lit Festival, Chicago Humanities Festival, the old Story Week Festival, and many others. He will be the 13th author honored with the Chicago’s prestigious Fuller Award for lifetime achievement at a ceremony that will include a series of speakers and a conversation with Rick. Check back for details on the lineup. Food and a cash bar will follow the ceremony, with guests encouraged to enjoy the Chopin Theater’s beautiful and spacious reception area.
