Get Lit Episode 128: Printer's Row Lit Fest

This week, we set up a mic and waited for your stories at the Printer's Row Lit Fest in Chicago, IL. In the first part of this episode, we share your answers to questions like, 'what book or author has had an impact on you?' and 'if you could take a literary character or author to dinner, who would you take and why?' In the second half, we hear from local and indie authors who share their new and upcoming releases with you! Connecting with you this weekend was absolutely fantastic! Here's to growing the literary community of Get Lit and beyond!

Get Lit Episode 127: Elizabeth Gaskell

Elizabeth Gask-who? Exactly! We're hoping to shine a light on this oft neglected author of Victorian England who wrote about poverty, double standards, and the working class, made her own money and traveled around Europe! Grab your tea - it's Dickens, without the baggage!

Get Lit Episode 126: Eudora Welty

Eudora Welty. Wildly underrated, glass ceiling shattering, novelist, short story writer, photojournalist, Pulitzer Prize winner, and a card carrying member of the Night-Blooming Cereus Club to boot. Pack some sun lotion and a fan - we're headed to Jackson, Mississippi this week!
