Plan Ahead: Printers Row Lit Fest

The Printers Row Lit Fest is upon us, scheduled to take place on June 9 and 10. There's a plethora of programming open for the RSVPing now, right now. It's actually kind of dizzying.

As always there will be hundreds of tents, occupied by publishers, big and small alike, plus literary organizations. Buy books, hear wisdom, enjoy being outside. My eyes started to hurt before I reached the end of the list, but here are some programming highlights, in my humble opinion:

Nick Dybek and Sara Levine in conversation with Donna Seaman, June 9

Dmitry Samarov and Michael Czyzniejewski w/Christopher Borrelli, June 9

• "Sex & Violence" moderated by Clare O'Donohue, June 9.

Peter Orner and Patrick Somerville in conversation wtih Scott Blackwood, June 9

• Just Get Me Started Writing Workshop featuring StoryStudio with Jill Pollack, June 9

And that's only a tiny snippet of Saturday!

Shouldn't that be June rather than Jan.?

Eek! Yes, fixed.
