Join CWA Under the Tent at Printers Row, June 8-9, 2019

For the sixth consecutive year, the Chicago Writers Association will have a tent at the Chicago Tribune Printers Row Lit Fest, which will be held Saturday, June 8 and Sunday, June 9. We invite you to visit us and our 60 authors and book sellers under Tent V, in the heart of the fest, on Dearborn between Harrison and Polk. We'll be across from the Little Lit Park, where the kids stage is located, sandwiched between the Illinois Woman's Press Association and Windy City Historians tents.

About Printers Row Lit Fest: Hosted by the Chicago Tribune, the Printers Row Lit Fest is considered the largest free outdoor literary event in the Midwest, drawing more than 125,000 book lovers to the annual two-day showcase. Printers Row Lit Fest is located on historic Printers Row, on and around the area of Dearborn Street, from Congress to Polk streets in Chicago. For more information, visit

Come visit us at this great event!
