From Don Evans: “”There is also a special luncheon earlier in the day at the Cliff Dwellers Club (200 S. Michigan Ave., program from noon-1 p.m.). It is the second annual Carl A. Kroc Award luncheon. The Kroc Award is given each year–starting last year with Harriet Monroe–to an inductee whose contributions extend far beyond their literary output. Katherine Joslin (biographer), Frances McNamara (novelist, Death at the Hull House) and a representative of the Hull House will give brief talks.”
