  TODAYS GAY & LESBIAN EVENTS

Saturday September 5th

36th annual Printers Row Lit Fest
10:00am - 6:00pm

CHICAGO (April 10, 2020) Out of an abundance of caution, and prioritizing the safety and wellbeing of its guests, authors and vendors, the Near South Planning Board has postponed this year's Printers Row Lit Fest until Labor Day weekend, Saturday, Sept. 5 and Sunday, Sept. 6 from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Originally scheduled for June, Printers Row Lit Fest is the largest outdoor literary showcase in the Midwest, with 100% free programming for book lovers. The highly anticipated 2020 festival will be headlined by New York Times bestselling author and National Book Award winner Ta-Nehisi Coates, as previously announced. Coates is the recipient of this year's Harold Washington Literary Award and kicks offPrinters Row Lit Fest on Sept. 5 at 10 a.m. at the Cindy Pritzker Auditorium at Harold Washington Library (400 S. State Street, Chicago). More than 100,000 visitors are expected during Printers Row Lit Fest, which will feature nearly 100 events with local and national bestselling authors and more than 100 diverse booksellers-plus spoken word performances, chef demos, writing workshops, and events for children and young adults. The 36th annual Printers Row Lit Fest takes place on Saturday, Sept. 5 and Sunday, Sept. 6 from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. daily, along Dearborn Street from Polk Street north to Ida B. Wells Drive (formerly Congress Parkway). All festival programs are free and open to the public. For more information and festival updates in the coming months, visit printersrowlitfest.org. Ta-Nehisi Coates will be honored at the 2020 Harold Washington Literary Award gala, a ticketed fundraiser that supports the Near South Planning Board's Authors in the Schools program. The event has been postponed to Thursday, Sept. 3 at 6 p.m. to coincide with the new festival dates. More information on the Harold Washington Literary Award dinner can be found at thenspb.org. Coates is a Distinguished Writer in Residence at NYU's Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute. He is the author of the bestselling books The Beautiful Struggle, We Were Eight Years in Power, and Between the World and Me, which won the National Book Award in 2015. His first novel, The Water Dancer, was released in September 2019. Coates is a recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship. He is also the current author of the Marvel comics The Black Panther and Captain America. Near South Planning Board is the official Printers Row Lit Fest presenter. Festival support is provided by program sponsor Wintrust, and major event sponsors Robert R. McCormick Foundation, Alphawood Foundation, Poetry Foundation, Allstate, Better, Sourcebooks, Chicago Public Library, Chicago Sun-Times, American Writers Museum and WBEZ Chicago. Near South Planning Board, founder of the Printers Row Lit Fest, is a not-for-profit community-based organization serving businesses, institutions and property owners of the Near South Side of Chicago since 1946. The Harold Washington Literary Award recognizes diverse and stimulating authors who address issues of contemporary life and whose literary achievements include a significant body of work that has touched the public mind and imagination. Harold Washington, the first African American mayor of the City of Chicago, revered literature and epitomized the diversity of the American experience. The award, which bears his name, celebrates this spirit. The goal of this award is to present examples to the public of creative use of the written word. Recipients of this prestigious award are selected by a cross-cultural committee of representatives from Chicago's literary community. Past Harold Washington Literary Award winners starting in 1989 include Susan Sontag, Kurt Vonnegut, Ralph Ellison, August Wilson, Scott Turow and Alex Kotlowitz.
