Designers should create a poster inspired by the program or one of their favorite One Book, One Chicago selections.

Submissions will be housed on Flickr and voting will open up from Monday, Sept. 19 through Sunday, Sept. 25. Following the vote, the top 30 finalists will be showcased at a special reception at the Harold Washington Library’s Winter Garden on Thursday, October 11.
