Event Details
On June 13, 2020, join us for a special evening benefiting the Chicago Literacy Alliance. Enjoy music, book art, refreshments, and an auction of a spectacular array of rare, signed, and special books. Mingle and peruse the display, enjoying drinks, hors d'oeuvres, and desserts. Following a short program, you'll have the opportunity to choose the items you most want to take home. All proceeds will support our work in furthering literacy in Chicago.
We are honored to present the Champion of Literacy Award to Elizabeth Taylor for her local and national efforts in building an active, dynamic, and diverse literate culture throughout Chicago. Currently Literary Editor at Large with the Chicago Tribune, Liz also co-founded the National Book Review and is Spark and Creative Director of Chicago's annual Printers Row Lit Fest. Liz has served as President of the National Book Critics Circle, chair of five Pulitzer Prize juries, and is co-author of American Pharaoh
We are also excited to present the Leader in Literacy Award to BMO Harris Bank for their commitment to collaboration, learning, and innovation and for sharing in the CLA’s work to further literacy in Chicago.
