Book Signing

What is the Chicago Tribune Printers Row Lit Fest?
The Printers Row Lit Fest was founded in 1985 by the Near South Planning Board to attract visitors to the Printers Row neighborhood (once the city’s bookmaking hub). By 2002, it had grown to five city blocks (on Dearborn, from Congress to Polk), attracting more than 200 booksellers from across the country displaying new, used and antiquarian books and featuring more than 200 authors participating in panels, discussions and a variety of other programs.

 

As part of its ongoing commitment to the written word and its support of literacy and literary endeavor, the Chicago Tribune purchased the Printers Row Book Fair in 2002 from the Near South Planning Board. Recently renamed to be the Printer’s Row Lit Fest, it is considered the largest free outdoor literary event in the Midwest-drawing more than 125,000 book lovers to the two-day showcase. Events occur from 10 a.m.-10 p.m. on Saturday, June 8, and 10 a.m.-6 p.m. on Sunday, June 9, 2013.

 

Who exhibits at Printers Row Lit Fest?
Booksellers, publishers, literacy and cultural organizations sell and promote books and book-related merchandise and distribute related information. Many of the independent booksellers participating in the Fest represent the diverse ethnic and cultural communities of the Chicagoland area and sell books of different languages and genres.

 

Will I have a chance to have one of my books signed?
All Chicago Tribune Printers Row Lit Fest authors are asked to remain after their event for at least one hour to sign copies of their books at official Fest book-signing areas.
