We're hunkering down for winter and barricading ourselves in the best kind of fort — a book fort. We'll be there talking about our upcoming winter and spring programs and how you can sign up for the Hungry for Stories Book Club.

On November 19, Book Fort hosts the bi-annual Book Fort Fair at Curbside Books & Records in Revival Food Hall. Join us for an afternoon of bookselling, mingling, and drinking!

The Book Fort Fair will host 20+ indie publishers, record labels, and literary organizations, plus an all-day DJ, literary-themed cocktails, a screenprinting workshop, a button making station hosted by Busy Beaver, and live typewriter poetry courtesy of Poems While You Wait. Phew, what a lineup! And admission is free!

A partial list of participating organizations: Curbside Splendor, Allium Press, 7Vientos, Featherproof Books, Poetry Foundation, Soberscove Press, 826Chi, Rose Metal Press, Belt Publishing, Lake Claremont Press, The Point magazine, Tortoise Books, Poems While You Wait, Busy Beaver, Read Write Library, and Midwestern Gothic.
