The Indie City Book Fair will feature everything from murder mysteries to memoirs from some of Chicago’s many talented self-published authors and finest independent presses. The fair will also feature general literary fiction, children’s stories, young adult, women’s studies, women’s fiction, adventure, horror, science fiction and paranormal tales. Authors will read from their books on the half hour. The event will be from noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 30 at the Southside Hub of Production (SHoP) at 1448 E. 57th Street, Chicago. Featured authors and guests include M.L. Kennedy, K.B. Jensen, Samantha Clark, Melanie Holmes, Tyler Coulson, L. Nahay, Frank Heiberger, Connie Corcoran Wilson, Janina Rusiecki, Elizabeth Wheeler, James Gordon better known as G.P.A. (Greatest Poet Alive), and Featherproof Books. With its many bookshops, Hyde Park has always been a destination for book lovers and the organizers of the Indie City Book Fair hope to add to that tradition. Several of the authors are local to the neighborhood and all have Chicago ties, says Indie City Book Fair Co-organizer K.B. Jensen. “We are really excited about how many talented local indie authors we will have at the book fair giving readings,” Jensen says. “It’s a chance for people to come out and meet some really innovative and original independent authors, and hear their stories firsthand. The cool thing about indies is they tend to take a lot of risks in their writing.”
