Testimonials
I really had a great time. It was illuminating listening to authors talk about their craft. I also liked the organizational structure of linking multiple sessions with a single theme. I attended the block of sessions on writing a mystery. The length of each session was just right at 50 minutes. Another thing that I enjoyed were the informal group activities like the cocktail hours, lunches, dinners, and afternoon tea with novelist interview. I was able to chat with some author and fellow attendees. Overall, five stars!

The Evelyn Hopkins Award

The Evelyn Hopkins Award has been awarded every year since 2009, the 10th anniversary of Love is Murder. It is presented in recognition of Outstanding Efforts on Behalf of Readers and Writers of Genre Fiction.

The first award was given to its namesake, Evelyn Hopkins. It was she who conceived of holding a truly mixed readers' and writers' genre fiction conference in Chicago; without her initial vision and dedicated efforts, we would not have this conference that we all love so much.

The first LIM was sponsored by William Rainey Harper College and attended by fewer than 60 people. Many years and two moves later (first to College of DuPage, then to the current venue at InterContinental Hotel), Evelyn's broad and inclusive concept held together a group of true believers to see LIM become the premier, and only truly independent readers' and writers' genre fiction con in the Midwest.
