Chicago Independent Bookstore Day

 THE FIRST ANNUAL CHICAGO INDEPENDENT BOOKSTORE DAY!

City Lit Books is participating in the First Annual Chicago Independent Bookstore Day on July 12, 2014. Nine Chicago independent bookstores are teaming up to create this event. To encourage Chicago readers to visit their own neighborhood store as well as the other unique stores in different neighborhoods—from Hyde Park to Logan Square to Andersonville—indie stores are offering special deals, free books, and refreshments. Customers will also receive a handful of puzzle pieces from each participating store that will fit together to create an exclusively designed frameable print by Lilli Carré.

City Lit will feature a number of our own events on Saturday July, 12, 2014. 

10:30 Storytime with Miss Irica

12:00 Signing and samples with Martha Bayne, author of the Soup & Bread Cookbook

5:00 Curbside Spendlor Publishing Author Readings and Giveaways

 

All day long, City Lit will be having a sidewalk sale. So drop in, pick up a book from the sidewalk, catch a song with Miss Irica, and eat something delicious with Martha Bayne! And check out our fellow Chicago booksellers all weekend long! 

 

 

We're Famous!


THE IMPORTANCE OF A GREAT BEACH READ... 
You know that we're excited for the start of summer... great weather, great Logan Square activities, and, of course...GREAT BOOKS.
 
We at City Lit love summer reads so much that Chicago took notice!
 
Check us out on Racked.com this week where our City Lit staffers chat about their favorite beach reads. A mixture of sci-fi, mystery, and YA...I promise you WON'T be able to put these books down!
 
Let us choose your next great read. Sand and Sun optional (but encouraged!).
 
 
 

BYO Book Slam

CITY LIT BOOKS PRESENTS OUR FIRST ANNUAL BYOBOOK SLAM 
Whether you're dying to tell someone about the best.book.ever, or you're looking for your next favorite novel, Book Slam is for you.  Join City Lit's booksellers as we try to convince you to pick up our favorite titles.  We'd also love to have you participate!  Bring your own favorite book and prepare to give a short spiel on the who-what-where-when-why.  We'll take turns showcasing our choices.  Hopefully we'll all walk away with a long list of books to read, and a new group of literary soulmates.

This month's topic: Beach Reads!
Bonus: It's BYO-book, BYO-bag, and BYO-beer.  Ease those nerves before your turn on stage!
