Read Local

We recently launched “Read Local,” a new way to emphasize local authors, editors, and publishers. You may have noticed that we've begun branding events and displays featuring local literati with the Read Local tag. Women & Children First has always taken great pride in working with the local writing community. We hope our new Read Local designation will help build audiences for and focus attention on the work of the extraordinarily talented writers of Chicago.
