Through his television shows, movies reviews and essays, Ebert belonged to the world beyond nearbyUrbana, Ill., where he grew up. One part of Ebert's life that got little attention as the nation mourned his sudden death April 4, 2013, was how much he meant to this university town. This year's Ebertfest runs April 178-21.
