Event—Public Programming

The 2022 Newberry Library Award Celebration

We were delighted to recognize Ira Glass and This American Life with the 2022 Newberry Library Award. When This American Life debuted in 1995, it reimagined public radio. The program paved the way for journalism that centers human experiences, uplifts storytellers, and entertains and educates at the same time. We are thrilled to celebrate the achievements of Ira Glass and his colleagues.

Thank you for joining us and for supporting the Newberry. We hope this program sparks your curiosity about the library and our work. We invite you, friends of the Newberry, to visit us soon and explore our extraordinary collection, engaging exhibitions, and diverse programs.
