Great Evening with Bill Savage!

Many thanks to Bill Savage for a wonderful and insightful evening of Chicago literary history. Nelson Algren’s trek through Chicago came alive as Bill presented stories of Algren’s time in Chicago, his connections with city life, and valuable memorabilia illustrating his connection with literary greats like Gwendolyn Brooks. Even Algren’s connection to the Despres family was shown through an autographed copy of Chicago: City on the Make given to the late Leon Despres. Great job Bill!
