Hey, the big event is tomorrow! (Thursday, Oct. 27, 2022)
If you’re among our guests, here are a few quick details.
Location and Parking: Altgeld Hall is literally a large castle in the middle of campus. It’s the only building that looks remotely like this, so it’s easy to find. After 5 (except for reserved and handicapped parking), parking is free. There are two+ lots within about 500 feet of the building’s main entrance. https://www.niu.edu/visit/maps/index.shtml
Payment: It’s $40 per person, and you can pay at the door. Bring cash for the cash bar. :)
Rick Nagel is a man in whose mouth butter never melted. No, wait — that’s S.J. Perelman.
Let’s start again. Nagel is a longtime (read “old”) Chicago-area journalist and former govie who is now enjoying retirement. He has held many highfalutin titles: managing editor of Press-Republican Newspapers, editor in chief of Press Publications, editor-publisher of The Beacon-News, and vice president of editorial of Sun-Times News Media, to name a few. Nagel was one of the first Midwest editors of AOL’s “Patch” and served as outreach coordinator for Kane County, IL, where he created Kane County Connects.
He never will be confused with the world's most interesting man, but he has led an eclectic and happy life.
You can contact him any time at firstname.lastname@example.org.
