Whether you’re looking for a new summer beach read or advice on writing your first novel, the 28th Annual Chicago Tribune Printers Row Lit Fest has you covered. This Saturday and Sunday, 250 authors and 180 booksellers will take over Chicago’s famed Printers Row in a literary event that will surely be one for the...erm, books. From 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., guests will be treated to free readings, panels, and events on seven stages, as well as literary events for the youngsters at the Lil’ Lit Park. Tickets to the events are free and available online. Even if you can’t make it this weekend, the Chicago Tribune is offering membership to a new weekly 24-page Printers Row section dedicated to all things literary. If you're looking for a smarter way to have fun this weekend, we found it.
