Curbside Pop Up Book Fair this Sunday

This Sunday, Nov. 9, publisher Curbside Splendor hosts one of its staple events, a Pop Up Book Fair at the Empty Bottle, 1035 N. Western Ave., from 1 to 6pm.

The fair will include over 30 local and regional presses, authors and organizations.
The list of attendees includes presses Chicago Center for Literature and Photography and Featherproof books; magazines Poetry, Graze, and MAKE; and organizations Chicago Writers Association and Chicago Women in Publishing among others. Snag new Curbside titles at their table and check out their imprints 7 Vientos and Artiface.
