City Lit is 6 today. Since Day One, we have known that it is a privilege to be here every day – surrounded by great books, talking with interesting people, and excited that we have a chance to make a difference in our community.
However, as it takes time for many lovely things in life to mature and come into their own, I believe that it’s taken this long for City Lit to:
- Assemble Chicago’s best group of booksellers. Today’s team of Matt, Jordan, Maddie, Audie, Allison, and Clare bring remarkable energy and commitment to City Lit every day.
- Become a destination for touring and local authors.
- Be that spot for sharing the latest favorite book, political concerns and even flowers from the Farmers Market.
- Be a place for kids to come running into and exclaiming, “I love the bookstore!”
Thanks to everyone who has supported City Lit for these six lovely years. You have filled each and every day with amazing and wonderful experiences. We are looking forward to the opportunities and experiences to come!
