Chicago Tribune Book Prizes

This year’s Chicago Tribune Book Prizes were awarded this weekend at the Chicago Humanities Festival. The Literary Prize went to Stephen Sondheim, renowned musical theater lyricist. The Heartland Prize, given to one nonfiction and one fiction author, awards works “embodying the spirit of the nation’s heartland.” Here are the winners!

    Our Book Club read Freedom and we all thought it was awful. Probably the worst book we read last year! No one cared about the characters at all! Judging from some of the Book Club write ups in the Trib, we were not alone!
