Printer's Row Lit Fest & CAKE Outing

This coming weekend holds two cool events in Chicago:

The Printer's Row Lit Fest, a huge bookish celebration on and around Printer's Row downtown. Hundreds of booksellers of all kinds, all the local presses and groups, and tons of authors doing talks and signings. Check the schedule for more.

The Chicago Alternative Comics Expo (CAKE!) is a celebration of alternative, indie, underground comics/graphics/zines of all kinds, and is a good fun. Lots of locals, lots of international artists, lots of illustrious webcomic folks you may know of! CAKE is at the Center on Halsted in Lakeview.

Both events run both Saturday and Sunday and are primarily free and open to the public--Printer's Row does have some ticketed events.

I'm seeing if I can rustle up some Think Galactic, Chicago Nerds, and other bookish SF/F types to meet up on Sunday--wander Printer's Row for a bit and catch a talk with Annalee Newitz, Charlie Jane Anders, Dan Sinker, and Kameron Hurley, then head up to CAKE for a bit. Probably some food/drinks in between or after, too.

Shoot me a message or check out the Facebook event if you want to tag along.
