Mark your calendars for July 12, and help us celebrate Chicago's first annual Independent Bookstore Day! Find all details here.
You should not be surprised to learn that these women (some of our very favorite women!) who write such great books also read great books. Their summer reading lists have everything you need to while away the warmer hours (and a few to look forward to as winter looms again).
