PRINTERS ROW LIT FEST, Chicago’s long standing open air book fair is taking place this Saturday and Sunday again in printers row in the South Loop.
It is taking place, as every year, along the streets of Polk and Dearborn. Come meet the authors talking, signing and selling their latest work at their booths, browse row upon rows of new and used books, listen to poetry or attend a forum: the schedule of events and activities is packed and you can find it here.
Sting, amongst other stars, will be in attendance this year to present a new story-telling initiative.
As in the past four years, Delphine Pontvieux will be attending the list fest, however she will only be present on Saturday, June 8th, all day.
Mark your calendars to pay her a visit tomorrow and talk about her long awaited sequel to ETA-Estimated Time of Arrest, have her sign a copy of her thriller in the name of a great friend or family member (everyone loves a present, especially when it is not expected!), listen to awesome tracks by various Basque bands from the PINTXATU tapas cookbook, where recipes are not paired with wines, but with a song. She will also have a few pieces from her new equestrian unisex jewelry collection on hand.
You can find her on Dearborn Street, at the AVENDIA PUBLISHING booth, # Q2 (there are maps of the lit fest available everywhere on site).
Free event – Perfect for a family outing.
