Join us this summer to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Printers Row Lit Fest.

It started out in 1985 as 40 booksellers praying against the rain with 6,500 readers filtering in and out throughout the weekend. This year, about 150 bookstores and publishers will be selling books to an expected 130,000 people in attendance. And for the fourth year running, Post Mortem Press will be setting up shop for Printers Row Lit Fest in Chicago.

It’s this weekend, chock full of readings, panel discussions, music, food, and kids’ programming. Stop by the Post Mortem Press booth and pick up a personalized copy of CAMP ARCANUM by Josef Matulich, WITCH’S CARTEL by Brian Dobbins, TRY NOT TO BURN by Michael Matula, SANTA MUERTE by Cynthia Pelayo, and TOXICITY by Max Booth III (Saturday only). I’ll also be signing copies of LOSING TOUCH for the second year running.

(L-R) Brian Dobbins, Stephanie Kania-Beebe, Cynthia Pelayo, me, Eric Beebe, and Michael David Matula.

It’s not a convention, there are no membership requirements, and it doesn’t require a ticket to get in. All you need is a love of the written word.

You’ll find the lit fest on Dearborn Street between Congress Parkway and Polk Street. If you’re taking the ‘L’, the Harrison Street stop on the Red Line will be closed for construction this weekend. Your best bet is to get off at the Jackson Street stop and walk to the festival. We’ll be there 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Hope to see you there!

Here’s a little bit of what went on last year. Advance to 23:25 to see a mountain man talk about his book, punctuated by a lot of ‘ums’:
