Printers Row Lit Fest
37th Annual Printers Row Lit Fest
The Printers Row Lit Fest, the largest free outdoor literary showcase in the Midwest, is a community-based celebration for book lovers presented by the not-for-profit Near South Planning Board.
More than 100,000 visitors are expected over the two-day festival, which will feature carefully selected offerings from over 100 booksellers; everything from the tattered to the rare to ‘hot off the press,’ newly published works.
2022 Printers Row Lit Fest will take place September 10 & 11, 10am-6pm, on South Dearborn Street, from Ida B. Wells to Polk Street in historic Printers Row. We urge you to support Chicago's independent bookstores and come listen to amazing authors and panelists.
