Printers Row Lit Fest Returns to South Loop

CHICAGO (CBS) — A treasure trove for literature buffs returned to the South Loop this weekend.

The 37th Annual Printers Row Lit Fest is underway along Dearborn Street from Ida B. Wells Drive south to Polk Street.

Visitors could browse titles from 100 independent bookstores. There were also author forums, poetry readings, and vendors selling other literary items.

One of the highlights Saturday afternoon was a “Literary Death Match” presented by StoryStudio Chicago and the Near South Planning Board featuring an all-star team of judges. There were also multiple discussions about books on social justice and identity issues.

If you were not there on Saturday, the party will take place again on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. It is free to attend.
