Mapping Chicago's Literary Spots

By Betsy Mikel in Arts & Entertainment on Apr 22, 2011 9:00PM

This map highlights bookstores, libraries and other literary stuffs open to the public.
Thanks to our friends over at Gapers Block Book Club for sharing Dan Copulsky's "literary things to do in Chicago" map. This little tour highlights literary sites and other bookish places such as libraries and special collections, bookstores, literary nonprofits, a historic landmark, and museums. It's terrifically organized with little blurbs about each location. Red icons are bookstore, blue icons are libraries, green icons are everything else. You download a printable copy as well. Copulsky is also accepting PayPal donations to help distribute more hard copies.
