In a previous post, I mentioned I'd be giving you, readers dear, a behind the scenes look at Printers Row Lit Fest over the weekend and in the days that follow, but what we have yet to discuss is where, exactly, yours truly may be found during the festival weekend and what, precisely, it is that I will be doing. Because make no mistake, Chicago Subtext is all about Printers Row Lit Fest.
So, this weekend for Printers Row Lit Fest, on both Saturday and Sunday all day, I will be at the Colonel Tribune/ChicagoNow table. Throughout the weekend, I will be streaming live online and conducting interviews with local authors and publishers and event curators including Gina Frangello, James Kennedy (whom I previously mentioned here), Mark R. Brand, Jill Summers and Dave Reidy. Follow me on Twitter to know each interview is going, or check in right here on Chicago Subtext where I will let you watch it all for yourself via our UStream channel.
Also, with a plan to build the Quintessential Chicago Books List-- in segments, by genre-- over the next several months, I will be kicking off with classic Chicago novels. And, to do so, I'm asking everyone to vote on their favorite classic Chicago novel. I have nine classic Chicago novels on the ballot, and room for write-ins, so please do come by, fill out a ballot and say hello.
Finally, I will be speaking as a panelist
on the Page to Pixel panel on Sunday at 3:15pm with Christopher Booker, Owen
Youngman and David Kipen, moderatored by Chicago
Tribune Magazine Editor and Books Editor, Elizabeth Taylor.
And, I'll most assuredly have a camera with me and will be doing several special Printers Row editions of my So Far Review series.
See you there!
