Once you Pop, You Can't Stop: Pop-Up Book Fair Returns

The folks at Curbside Splendor Publishing are back with their third Pop-up Book Fair Sunday, July 7 at the Empty Bottle, 1035 N. Western.

The fair welcomes back over 40 local independent publishers, presses and organizations for an expo market from 12:30pm until 5pm. Quimby's Bookstore will be on hand with a selection of self-published books and zines. Other expo participants include 826chi, Another Chicago Magazine, Chicago Zine Fest, Haymarket Books, Criminal Class Press and more. There will something for every lover of the printed word.

To complement the visual component of the expo, there will be audio accompaniment throughout the day. Live DJ Sets are scheduled by DJ Nagasaki, DJ Goldie Bear, DJ "2nd Cousin, Twice Removed", DJ Kale Party, KRUBREDNUF, DJ Heavy Inspinuation, & DJ DG.

Don't forget, the bar will be open for those early afternoon cocktails. There is a $5 cover, but free if you RSVP. 21+ unless minors are accompanied by an adult.
