Chicago Independent Bookstore Day

Body: 

 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!
