Howard Schwartz, the noted poet, essayist, novelist, editor, and expert on Jewish folklore and mythology, will receive the 2019 Tradition of Literary Excellence Award at a gala reception at 7 pm on October 26, on the fifth floor of University City’s historic city hall building.

The public is invited to attend the awards ceremony and may purchase tickets ($20/person; $35/couple), which cover light refreshments and live music, at the door. To reserve your tickets, use the ‘Get tickets’ button on our Facebook page.

The award, which was created in 2014 and is funded by the Municipal Commission on Arts & Letters of University City, is given “to honor the work of a living local author whose literary achievement has won national and international acclaim and, in so doing, has contributed to the distinction of the St. Louis area, upholding its tradition as a center of literary excellence.”
