Midway Summer in the City Signature Event

Summer Lit Fest

Chicago is known for its festivals, and at Midway we are kicking off our own Summer Literature Festival featuring Chicago authors and their books in our Summer Lit Fest pop up shop and reading nook, and throughout the retail locations including the Hudson Booksellers, The Stacks, Chicago News and Windy City News. Along with the star power of our very own Chicago authors we will also be joined by the Chicago Public Library and Hudsy the Dog who will be sharing his very own scavenger hunt activity for our summer readers.
