Attention all Evanston book lovers! We are very pleased to announce that the 2018 Evanston Literary Festival Book Fair will take place right here at EPL, and we couldn’t be more excited. Intended as a showcase for local authors, presses, and literary organizations, the fair will take place on Saturday, May 12 from 2-5 pm in the Community Meeting Room of EPL’s Main Library.

For local authors, presses, or literary organizations who are interested in exhibiting, please submit a 2018 Evanston Literary Festival Book Fair Application by April 20, 2018. Since space is limited, submitting an application does not guarantee a spot at the fair, but all applicants will be considered based on the criteria outlined on the application form.

For Evanston book lovers, please save the date of May 12. The book fair is a great chance to celebrate Evanston’s talented and diverse literary community, and we can’t think of a better way to kick off the 2018 Evanston Literary Festival. See you there!




The Biggest Book Ever

October 12, 2010

The world’s record for the largest book was just broken last week at the  Frankfurt Book Fair on October 6, 2010. An Australian publisher decided to shift the focus away from all the micro-media and printed an enormous atlas which measures 6 by 9 feet and sells for a mere $100,000. (Apparently it is very good quality.) He claims that the last time a book almost this size was printed was in 1660 as a gift for Charles II of England!
