The Chicago Review of Books is dedicated to covering the literary scene in Chicago and books by some of the nation’s top writers. We also cover books by rising literary stars who are already making names for themselves in the city and on the national stage.

Our dedicated readers look to us for suggestions on what to read and where to go in Chicago for fun and educational cultural events. We would be thrilled to bring our readers’ attention to your great work via our advertising platform.

Ads on our site can be purchased at a significantly lower rate than at other media outlets in the city. And moreover, we can offer you ad exclusivity for up to one month at a time. Here are just a few of the exciting benefits we can offer:

  • Exclusivity: We only run one ad at a time, so there’s no competition between advertisers.
  • Visibility: Ads appear in the right-hand sidebar on the front page and on every article, and scroll along with the reader for maximum visibility. 
  • Reach: We currently average between 40,000 and 50,000 visitors per month; the majority of our readers live and work in the Chicago metro area, are avid readers, and are interested in cultural activities.
  • Secondary reach: Your business or event will receive mentions in our monthly newsletter and on social media at no extra cost; we can also discuss promotion at one of our live events.
