American Writers Festival

May 19 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

Join us as writers from around the country and across genres and disciplines converge in Chicago to celebrate the power of the written word and the joys of reading.

The Festival will feature in depth conversations with diverse writers including sci-fi authors, game writers and designers, journalists and poets. From labor history to true crime thrillers to jazz music, the Festival will celebrate the past, promote the present and inspire the future of American writing. Children’s storytimes, photo booths, literary crafts and mini writing workshops get adults and kids into the written word, and authors will sign books for sale.
It’s an all-day literary event that’s completely open to the public. The full writer lineup and program schedule will be released in the coming weeks. So, stay tuned!
