Greater Midwest Foodways Alliance is dedicated to celebrating, exploring and preserving unique food traditions and their cultural contexts in the American Midwest. In this effort, we wish to support those who write books documenting our culinary heritage.


We will have a representative table at the Printers Row Lit Fest for the first time this year. We have requested a location near the Food and Dining stage, which is not yet confirmed.

On a first-come first-serve basis, we have available to our members an eight-foot table and two chairs to accommodate two authors for a two-hour shift. You may sell your books, though collection and payment of any sales taxes are your responsibility.

It is suggested authors arrive 15 minutes before your shift. Bathrooms are not conveniently located, so you may want to address this before settling in. We are in the open air street environment with no canopies allowed, you may want to bring an umbrella and apply sunscreen. We will provide a clear plastic sheet for the table, if it happens to rain.

Your registration is your annual members fee of $35. You may initiate or renew your membership when signing up for a time slot. If you are already a fully paid member, we will reimburse your fee and keep your time slot.

 

Memberships are non-refundable. Any cancelled author appearance reservation will go to whomever is next on the waiting list.  Any questions, please call 312/380-1665 or e-mail: [email protected]
