Who We Are


“I love the Chicago Review of Books.”
—Jeff VanderMeer

—Chad W. Post, Open Letter Books

—Breitbart News


The Chicago Review of Books is dedicated to making the literary conversation more inclusive by covering diverse genres, presses, voices, and mediums; shining a light on Chicago’s literary scene; and serving as a forum for literature in the Midwest. In partnership with Yale Climate Connections, we cover the latest trends in climate fiction via Amy Brady’s monthly “Burning Worlds” column.

Our sister publication Arcturus publishes original fiction, nonfiction, and poetry.

Our logo was designed by Chicago’s own Tiny Bold Creative from a concept by Erin Morgan. The owl’s name is Gwen.
