Event description

Description

The Chicago Literary Hall of Fame's roll of inductees includes a large number of writers whose careers were made in whole or part through their work as journalists. Ben Hecht, Mike Royko, Fanny Butcher, Carl Sandburg, Ring Lardner, and Ida B. Wells represent a small sample of Chicago's literary journalists. Even some Chicago Literary Hall of Fame nominees, like Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. (who got his start working for the old City News Bureau of Chicago) and Finley Peter Dunne (whose Mr. Dooley was a staple of his late 19th and early 20th century columns) owe a debt to their journalistic training. As we visit sites like the Tribune Tower and Billy Goat Tavern, and travel to iconic places like the Criminal Courts Building, we'll investigate the lives and work of Chicago's finest journalists.
