Literary Life - Attend Literary Festivals


Another way to pursue a literary life is to attend a literary festival. In Chicago, the Printers Row Literary Festival is coming up next weekend (June 4-5), offering lots of book browsing, readings, and discussions with authors. Unfortunately for me it happens on the same weekend as the 57th Street Art Fair in my own neighborhood, and I have a long-standing tradition of attending that with good old friends. But maybe I can split myself this year!

In any case, check out the Printers Row schedule if you're in Chicago and attend an event or two. If you're not in Chicago, and I realize most of my readers are not, let me know what literary festivals are happening in your neighborhoods! I don't mind drooling over events I can't go to!
