Upcoming Literary Awards

The Sun-Times reports (scroll down a little bit) that this year's recipient of the Carl Sandburg Award will be Salmon Rushide, author Midnight's Children among numerous others. Rushie will be honored at a gala dinner at the Harold Washington Library hosted by the Chicago Public Library on October 15. Local author Patrick Somerville will receive the accompanying 21st Century Award, which honors achievements by authors with ties to Chicago.
