The Chicago Tribune’s Printers Row Lit Fest is happening on Saturday, June 6 – Sunday, June 7. The Geeky Press is making a weekend of it. If you’re heading to the event, we’d love to meet up. Send us a tweet @TheGeekyPress or an email, and let’s meet up. You can also sign up for our Facebook event, if you’d like to see who else is going. (We’re a loosely affiliated group of word nerds.)

Otherwise, look for updates from the event while we’re there.
