Midway's Summer Lit Fest
Flying is better with a best seller.
On August 31, Chicago Midway Partnership, an alliance of Hudson Group, Vantage Airport Group and SSP America, hosted a Summer Literature Festival at Chicago Midway International Airport. The event featured a Summer Lit Fest pop up shop and reading nook, representatives from the Chicago Public Library and book signings from seven local Chicago authors, including The Shape of Water novel co-author Daniel Kraus. During the four-hour event, book lovers young and old bought books and chatted with acclaimed authors while listening to live music from Chicago Music Award winner Potts & Pans. Hudsy the Dog also made an appearance at the event, taking selfies with travelers and hosting a scavenger hunt activity throughout Midway’s Central Market. At the end of the event, more than 60 books were sold!
