The Printers Row Lit Fest, the largest free outdoor literary showcase in the Midwest, marks its 37th year with an expanded outdoor presence and a return to its original roots as a community-based celebration for book lovers presented by the not-for-profit Near South Planning Board.

The much-anticipated 2020 Printers Row Lit Fest will take place along Dearborn Street, from Dearborn Station to the newly named Ida B. Wells Drive (formerly Congress Parkway), rain or shine, Saturday – Sunday, Sept 9 & 10, 2023, from 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.

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.

We will be having a booth at this year’s event if there is enough interest. We can have a large 20x20 booth that will give us room for 7 additional authors to present their books during the weekend. The cost per author is $500 for the two-day event if with us, if by yourself, a table starts at $375 with no canopy and can go as high as $650, or a booth starts at $1,125.

As always with an event like this, we will be giving members two options: Book Display or Table Space. Please select which option you would like below.
