Printers Row Lit Fest :: June 6&7 :: Meet Me There!

2 06 2009

I’ve been going to the Printers Row Lit Fest since 2001. I fell in love at Printers Row, I recited my second piece as a part of Young Chicago Authors at Printers Row. I may have taken a hiatus in 2002 when it was bought out by the Chicago Tribune–you know us creative types are afraid of the big corporations–yet I didn’t stay away for long. So, I’ll be there VOLUNTEERING this Saturday. So if you have time, come down and check out the books, authors, poets and like-minded individuals. If you don’t have time, make time and  meet me there on Saturday!
