Volunteers still needed for Printers Row Lit Fest

Wanna rub elbows with YA legend Judy Blume, famed cartoonist Art Spiegelman, celebrity chef Rick Bayless and (no description required) Sting? Volunteer at the Chicago Tribune's annual Printers Row Lit Fest and you may get your chance. Follow this link to the the volunteer application-- it's the first step in getting a behind-the-book-flap experience at the Midwest's largest outdoor literary event, not to mention a free t-shirt and lunch.

The June 8 and 9 event is held at historic Printers Row, on and around the area of Dearborn Street, from Congress to Polk streets. Tickets will be available to the general public beginning May 27. More information about this year's presenters and other FAQs can be found at:
