Our Book Fair at the Thompson Center


We are a talented group of Black Chicago Authors who have banded together to form a network to highlight our work. Our goal is to bring our novels and literary publications to the forefront for the reading public.

We are dedicated to being a Chicago Renaissance for both urban literature and fiction/non-fiction in general.

From romance to comedy; children to fantasy; history and culture to inspirational and religious; we know that we can fulfill whatever form of literary works your mind desires.
