National Geographic's top ten literary cities

Posted By on 11.15.11 at 11:20 AM

Carl Sandburg
  • Carl Sandburg
And they are: 1. Edinburgh, Scotland 2. Dublin, Ireland 3. London, England 4. Paris, France 5. Saint Petersburg, Russia 6. Stockholm, Sweden 7. Portland, Oregon 8. Washington, D.C. 9. Melbourne, Australia 10. Santiago, Chile

The Chicago Literary Hall of Fame might beef about our city's exclusion from that list. CLHOF's second annual induction ceremony is tonight—the 2011 honorees are Cyrus Colter, Theodore Dreiser, Harriet Monroe, Mike Royko, Carl Sandburg, and Ida B. Wells.

The event is at 6 PM at the Harold Washington Library Center, 400 S. State. It's free, but registration is required, online or by phone (312-747-8184). Rick Kogan hosts.
