The Chicago Literary Hall of Fame will be presenting Gene Wolfe with the "Fuller Award" on March 17th at the Sanfilippo Estate in Barrington Hills. There is an impressive list of guest speakers and entertainers followed by a dinner.
Even sooner is CapriCon, which is February 9th through the 12th in Wheeling, Illinois. Wolfe is involved in a number of panel discussions, one in particular that caught my eye was a discussion entitled "Dystopia Now" that will include not only Wolfe, but Cory Doctorow, Paul McComas and Nayad Monroe. Looks to be good fun.
