Event Details

Book publishers have historically shied away from the City of Broad Shoulders. But the last couple of years have seen a growing number of small presses taking root in Chicago. Learn why these literary entrepreneurs are defying the sentiment that book publishing is a dying art and what they're doing to stay in the game in a free panel discussion, "The State of Publishing," 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., at the Gail Borden Public Library, 270 N. Grove Ave., Elgin, Ill.

The talk, moderated by Elgin publisher George Rawlinson (State Street Publishing), will feature the creative forces behind four Chicago small presses: Victor David Giron (Curbside Splendor), Rick Kaempfer (Eckhartz Press), Mike O'Mary (Dream of Things), and Emily Victorson (Allium Press).

Following the discussion there will be an opportunity for attendees to "Meet the Presses" during a social networking "Writers Block Party." Light snacks and soft drinks will be served. This free event is co-sponsored by the Chicago Writers Association, In Print and Author! Author! Book & Author Marketing Network.

The Gail Borden Public Library provides library meeting space as a community service. The library neither sponsors nor endorses this event nor the presenting individual(s) or organization(s).
