Lit Crawl is the Chicago incarnation of a much-loved literary fest celebrated across the country. The crawl happens from 3PM onward on Saturday, September 22, with events in storefronts and venues throughout Andersonville and Uptown. Many events happen simultaneously- audiences look at their crawl maps and make hard choices about what to see. But that’s the magic of Lit Crawl. Stroll down the street and see a special performance of a writer you’ve always loved, stop into a favorite venue for an unexpected literary activity, or stumble upon something completely new in a place you’ve never been.
Curated by Neo-Futurist Alum Jessica Anne, Neo-Futurist Artistic Associate Gwynn Fulcher, and Lindsay Muscato.
