A People's History of Chicago at Curbside
Join us tonight at 7 PM for a reading by Kevin Coval from his book, A People's History of Chicago. Come out to Curbside Books & Records and celebrate the Windy City with the man who The Chicago Tribune named "the voice of the new Chicago."

The event will include a reading by some of the contributors to the anthology and open mic readings about Chicago. The open mic registration list is full but registration for the waitlist is still open. 

Chicago Review of Books Awards 2017


Drumroll, please! The Chicago Review of Books Awards (Chirbys) went out last Friday and we’re proud to say Curbside was well represented. Both Revise the Psalm edited by Quraysh Ali Lansana and Sandra Jackson-Opoku and Body Horror by Ann Elizabeth Moore placed in this year’s Best Creative Non-Fiction category. A special shout out to Megan Stielstra who won the category with her new book The Wrong Way to Save Your Life from Harper Perennial. Make sure you also check out her earlier book Once I Was Cool and browse through the Chirby list.

Congratulations to all of the recipients and nominees! It’s an especially good time to be a Chicagoan.
