This long hot summer has been filling up with cool events for Gibson House Press authors.

Don’t miss Nancy Burke reading from Undergrowth, Sunday, July 29, (7 pm) at Sunday Salon-Chicago Mid-Summer Reading hosted at Celtic Crown Public House, 2356 W. Cullom Ave, in Chicago.

In May . . .

We hosted Evanston author Nancy Burke signing her novel Undergrowth and met lots of cool folks at the first-ever Evanston Literary Fest Book Fair at the Evanston (IL) Public Library. Great community turnout and great support for independent presses and literary organizations at the library. Thanks, EPL! We are big fans of libraries and the excellent work librarians do. Because the life of the mind never goes out of style.

The wonderful independent bookseller City Lit Books in Chicago hosted a special event featuring readings of published work by Gibson House authors.

Nancy Burke read from her novel Undergrowth at Cultivate Urban Rainforest & Gallery, with a full concert by Steve Dawson and Diane Christiansen of Dolly Varden.

We greeted many fans and friends at the Homewood Artisan Street Fair, with signings by Peter Robertson, Nancy Burke, and Courtney Yasmineh. Courtney Yasmineh also performed on the music stage.
