This Sunday, November 13, the Chicago Review of Books and our sister publication Arcturus magazine will have a booth at the fifth annual Chicago Book Expo. The book fair and expo floor at Columbia College (1104 S. Wabash) are completely free and open to the public from noon to 5 p.m.
We’ll be giving away dozens of free, brand-new books from the best publishers in the country—independent, university, and Big 5—as well as some free CHIRB swag. And if you stop by our table between 12:30 and 1 p.m., you can meet Chicago author Martin Seay, who will be signing copies of his bestselling novel from Melville House, The Mirror Thief.
Here’s a full list of the publishers and publications who’ll be exhibiting, and here’s a schedule of accompanying panels, workshops, and events.
See you at booth 21!
PS Here’s our interview with one of the expo organizers.
