The Chicago Review of Books is dedicated to covering books, publishing news, and magazine outlets, as well as the literary scene in Chicago. The writers we cover are rising literary stars as well as those who have already made names for themselves 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 more than 55,000 visitors per month; our readers are dedicated book lovers and book buyers who read a range of genres, including literary fiction, science fiction, and fantasy.
  • 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.
