The fourth Chicago Book Expo takes place at Columbia College on Saturday, November 21, 2015. This celebration of Chicago independent presses and authors will, as always, feature a book fair and expo floor where you can buy books from local presses and authors, as well as 19 programs, readings, and workshops. Special features this year are a book drive to benefit literacy nonprofit Open Books, as well as Pixiehammer Press writing commissioned love and hate letters. Special thanks to Columbia College’s Department of Creative Writing for hosting this event.
