Book Browsers Gets Flashed


On Saturday, June 4 at 2pm sharp, Printers Row Lit Fest browsers showed up at the Lil' Lit Park: Neverland children's stage for a scheduled group reading of Peter Pan led by journalist Rick Kogan. They got that and more: Right after the reading a flash mob of 500+ undercover dancers broke out. The event was organized by Open Books as part of their Make Your Mark/Get Chicago Reading program. Did you know 53% of Chicago adults have low or limited literacy skills? They do; click their link to find out how you can help through donating your time, books or money. Ample Flickr flash mob footage can be found here.
