REVEAL 25 – The Guild’s 25th Anniversary Party and Benefit

05/15/2014 @ 6:30 PM - 11:00 PM


25 Writers to Watch
25 Writers to Watch

REVEAL 25 is the Guild’s 25th anniversary party, an opportunity to celebrate 25 years of mission-driven accomplishments in Chicago’s vast literary community. It is a jubilant celebration of the past, and also a chance to look ahead to the future. Past and present directors, including founding director Michael Warr, will be announcing our 25 Writers to Watch—25 emerging and established writers whose works are making an impact on their communities and neighborhoods right now, and possess all the potential and power to influence writers and readers globally. These writers will be present at the party, and the Guild will include them in upcoming programs.

Our shindig takes place at Victory Gardens Biograph Theater (2433 N Lincoln Ave) across from the old Guild Books—the birthplace of the Guild Complex. We will celebrate this silver anniversary in style with an open bar from 6:30-7:30p.m., a special program (see below) at 7:30p.m., and music + libations + dancing the rest of the night. Please join us!

Online sales have ended. A few tickets are available at the door!


A Guild Complex happening would be incomplete without the voices of our friends, collaborators, and supporters. So send us your favorite Guild memory, and we’ll add it to a visual timeline at REVEAL 25. It could be a memory of teh first event you attended, or one that held special significance for you. Send as many memories as you wish: email them to AddYourVoice@guildcomplex.org.


Information on our guest presenters will be added soon, but expect to hear stories (and see performances) from Michael Warr, Julie Parson Nesbitt, Ellen Placey Wadey, Kimberly Dixon-Mays, and John Rich. Our 25 Writers to Watch will be REVEALed closer to the event.


We are pleased to partner with Victory Gardens Theater and Newcity for REVEAL 25.
