CHICAGO (AP) - The University of Chicago plans a festival to honor late writer and broadcaster Studs Terkel.

The new "Let's Get Working" festival will be at the school's Logan Center for the Arts from May 9 to 11. The free festival will feature concerts, discussions, performances and screenings.

Terkel was a Pulitzer Prize-winning author. He died in 2008 at age 96.

The university says the festival will spotlight "This American Life" host Ira Glass of NPR and filmmaker Alex Kotlowitz, among others.
