I was just finishing up the Page 2 note for Wednesday and wanted to fill you in on details about the Printers Row Lit Fest and the Trib Nation tent where you can hang out and talk with us that weekend.
You'll probably need a shady place to relax. We can help.
Throughout the weekend, Tribune personalities will be there to highlight some of the stories and forces shaping the news and our lives this year. We hope you'll stop by to meet columnists like Rick Kogan, who also hosts Chicago Live!, as he talks with author Jonathan Alter. Or listen to critics like Chris Jones, who will be in conversation with playwright
Here's a schedule of who will be hanging out in the Trib Nation tent and when, so you can make your plans.
In order of appearance, Rick Kogan, Julia Keller, Alex Garcia,
Guests include author Alter and Blue Balliett, plus Hwang, Baird Harper, James McManus, Natalie McNeal and Jim DeRogatis. I'll be there all weekend long. And it wouldn't be Trib Nation without you.
So save the date, and plan to stop by to hear about the Fest's programming, or just to say hello. Check out the Lit's full lineup at chicagotribune.com/printersrowlitfest. And watch this space and TribNation.com for more details and insight about what's going on at the Lit Fest this year.
Talk with you soon,
