New Project Aims to Support Literary Culture Makers

Navigation1.pngFrom small presses to reading series' to countless author events, Chicago pretty much eats, sleeps and breathes literary culture. And a new project called the Chicago Publishers Resource Center (CHIPRC) aims to "support these [literary] endeavors by helping those that work tirelessly to produce them."

At an open house on Saturday, September 28, 12-6pm, get a taste of the programming CHIPRC has up its sleeve; presentations include button-making, book-binding, zine-making, chalk art, and a FAQ about membership and other ways to support the project (view the complete schedule).

Located at the new facility at 858 N. Ashland, the event is open to the public, and programming is suitable for all ages. A suggested donation will benefit the new space and future programming.
