There is no better place than Chicago and no better time than now to bring to life the lives of the people who create magic and reality with words. The writers are the ones who help us laugh when we want to cry, think when we want to laugh. They are the keepers of our past, present and futures.  Onward to the next page! Always to the next page!
Jim Lehrer, American Journalist and Novelist
