Soulful Chicago Book Fair

  • 61st St between S. Cottage Grove and S. King Dr. Chicago, IL (map)

More than 4,500 people turned out for last year’s Soulful Chicago Book Fair, which former manager of the now-defunct Afrocentric Bookstore Asadah Kirkland organized to celebrate the literary arts among the African diaspora in the city of Chicago. Hundreds of authors, poets, and other creators will take part in the day-long literary festival in Woodlawn. It aims to give African-American writers more exposure in the literary marketplace and attain no less lofty a goal than “forging forward the new Black Literary Renaissance.”
