Printers Row Lit Fest 2009

It's just under two weeks now until the largest Midwest literary festival commences yet again on June 6th. Founded in 1985, the Chicago Tribune Printers Row Lit Fest attracts over one hundred thousand visitors to Chicago's former book printing hub in the South Loop. The festival also features panels of notable literary figures, activities for children and families, and of course, miles upon miles of books for purchase. It’s one of the greatest literary events for the city, according to the Publishing Program at the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs, a division dedicated in its own right to rejuvenating the Chicago literary scene.

Join the rest of the city in celebration of the printed word, along with plenty of networking opportunities. Events are free, but those that take place at the Harold Washington Library require free tickets, which can be reserved here.

As the literary industry is evolving worldwide, new trends of publishing will also take the forefront of discussion, with topics ranging from ebooks to print-on-demand to audio books for the ipod generation.

The Fest will take place on June 6th and 7th from 10am – 6pm. For directions and further information, check out the official site.
