Newcity's 2013 edition of Lit 50 is Out!

NEWNEWCITY.jpgLit 50, the annual list of who's who in the lit scene as documented by the staff at Newcity, is out today (right in time for Printers Row Lit Fest this weekend).

"The process, as excruciating as it is, always renews our optimism for the literary Chicago that carries on, bigger and better every year," says Newcity editor Brian Hieggelke in the issue's introduction.

There were 360 people under consideration for this year. Pick up a copy and check out the notable list to see who 'books' in the lit scene.
