Chicago Literature List Features English and Creative Writing Faculty Members

Hillary Chute, Neubauer Family Assistant Professor in English Language and Literature, as well as Rachel DeWoskin and Jeffrey Brown, both faculty members in Creative Writing, were featured on the Newcity Lit 2012 “Lit 50″ list, which celebrates “on-the-page creators” active in the Chicago literary scene. Chute was called an “alt-comics impresario” who “may be the one to take Chicago from being a comic-book city to a full-blown metropolis of graphic storytelling,” while Brown was hailed as an “ascendant talent” for his comic memoirs such as Darth Vader and Son. DeWoskin’s memoir Foreign Babes in Beijing is currently in development at HBO, while her most recent novel Big Girl Small won an Alex Award, which honors books with special appeal to young adults.
