RedEye's guide to Printers Row Lit Fest
There's nothing wrong with the usual summer fest trifecta of curb-sitting, head-bobbing and beer-sipping, but if you're craving a little more substance, mark your calendar for Chicago Tribune Printers Row Lit Fest, held June 7 and 8 in the blocks surrounding Polk and Dearborn streets. Produced by RedEye's big sib Chicago Tribune, it's the largest free literary festival in the country, and this year, there's a lot to celebrate. In addition to it being the fest's 30th anniversary, RedEye will also have its very own stage booked with fun events (see schedule below). Beyond the RedEye stage, more than 300 authors and performers participating in discussions, workshops and more make for a seriously daunting event lineup. Luckily, our staffers have made their picks to help you decide what should make your short list.
