Saul Bellow Way

Thanks to the efforts of Alderman Roberto Maldonado of Chicago’s 26th Ward, an ordinance was passed this month by the Chicago City Council designating the 2600-2700 block of Augusta Boulevard as “Saul Bellow Way.” The Noble Prize winning author lived on this Humboldt Park street with his family during his youth. This much overdue honor adds to Chicago’s celebration of Bellow, whose novel, The Adventures of Augie March, is the current “One Book, One Chicago” selection.
