The Midwest’s largest literary festival returns to Chicago’s historic Printer’s Row neighborhood in the South Loop with the Printer’s Row Lit Fest on September 10 and 11, 2022.
Stretching out over five blocks, the Printers Row Lit Fest features more than 100 booksellers, interactive discussions with local and national bestselling authors, spoken word performances, book signings and writing workshops.
Browse through tents filled with new and rare literary treasures, listen to a discussion with Natasha Trethewey, the Pulitzer Prize-winning headliner of the fest, or head to the poetry tent and interact with poets. This year’s fest also includes a teen workshop to inspire storytelling and creative writing sponsored by Steppenwolf Theatre.
