The Chicago Review of Books is dedicated to making the literary conversation more inclusive by covering diverse genres, presses, voices, and mediums. We’re also committed to shining a spotlight on Chicago’s dynamic literary scene and serving as a forum for literature in the Midwest.
Every weekday, we publish reviews, interviews, essays, and features about books, comics, audio dramas and audio docs, and literary stage and screen adaptations. Our sister publication Arcturus publishes original fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. While we feature as many Chicago-based writers, poets, events, and organizations as possible, our coverage is international in scope.
In partnership with the Chicago Independent Bookstore Alliance, we support Chicago-based writers and poets through local events like the annual Chicago Review of Books Awards. In partnership with Yale Climate Connections, we cover the latest trends in climate fiction via Amy Brady’s monthly “Burning Worlds” column. And as a member of the Chicago Literacy Alliance, we’re looking for new ways to support Chicago’s burgeoning readers and writers.
Want to help us continue our mission? Consider supporting the Chicago Review of Books as a member, patron, or sponsor. Each option comes with its own perks.
