Description

The Chicago Review of Books—in partnership with Chicago’s independent bookstores—wants to recognize the best books published in 2016 by writers in the Chicago Metropolitan Area.

The winners in each category will be announced live on December 8 from 7:30 to 9 p.m. at Volumes Bookcafe in Wicker Park, at a free awards ceremony and book signing that will feature panel conversations (moderated by CHIRB editor-in-chief Adam Morgan, Chicago mystery author Lori Rader-Day, and others) between some of the authors in each category about their books, writing process, and Chicago inspirations.

Meet your favorite local writers and discover some great books! Here are the shortlists for each category, along with who's confirmed to attend so far (more to come).
