Widely heralded as "the largest free outdoor literary event in
the Midwest," the Printer's Row LitFest is surprisingly as kind to
kids as it is to bookworms. It would seem a natural fit, as we all
would like our kids to learn to read, right? At the LitFest, which
is located on Printer's Row on the city's South Side (Dearborn and
Congress, to be exact), children are known to just sit on the curb
or grass and read. Plus, Chicago's own famous "Storybook Mom," Nili
Yelin hosts the kids' stage.
