Join us, Thursday April 27th 2017, at the Lock 16 Cafe in LaSalle for the Illinois Memoirs Dinner Lecture!
Illinois monumental literary heritage is particularly rich in autobiographies and memoirs, including the first noted autobiography from the Midwest (Chief Black Hawk’s), the most famous memoir associated with the Civil War (Ulysses S. Grant’s), and one of the most celebrated autobiographies by an American woman (Jane Addams’s Twenty Years at Hull House), among many others.
Illinois literary and cultural historian John Hallwas will explore selections from fascinating memoirs by Illinoisans. He will then lead the members of the audience in a discussion of contributions that they might make by writing memoirs, editing collections of short memoirs by local residents, or reading and discussing Illinois memoirs as a group.
