We’re gearing up for the fifth annual Chicago Book Expo on Sunday, November 13, 2016, from noon to 5pm. 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, as well as programs, readings, and workshops.
