On Saturday, June 3rd and Sunday, June 4th, Lake Claremont Press will be at the Printers Row Book Fair—the Midwest's largest free outdoor literary event—selling our unique brand of Chicago histories and guidebooks at discounted prices. We'll be in the southern section of the fair (near where we've been for twelve years) at booth CC1, just north of Polk on Dearborn (click here for a map of the fair).
