HAPPY BIRTHDAY NELSON ALGREN! - Sponsored by Nelson Algren Committee
Saturday March 29, 7:00 pm - 10:30 pm
Celebrate the legacy and spirit of Wicker Park/Bucktown’s most famous literary light on Saturday, March 29 at the artists’ space at 2418 W. Bloomingdale, Chicago, just west of Western Ave. and south of the Western/Armitage/Milwaukee Blue Line station.
Featured will be presentation of the annual Algren Award to the staff of WZRD for their service to the local community; performers including Donna Blue Lachman; a tribute to American musician/activist Pete Seeger; readings from Algren’s works; and a sneak preview of one of two Algren documentaries scheduled for release in the near future.
“The End Is Nothing, The Road Is All,” which takes its title from the epitaph on Algren’s gravestone, is a collaborative effort by Denis Mueller and Committee member Marc Blottner. There will also be refreshments, door prizes and the annual singing of “Happy Birthday” to the honored hepghost.
Admission $10; students/seniors $5; but as Nelson always said, “If you’re a little short, come anyway!”
