As publishers and booksellers, we seek to facilitate the discovery of independent literature and challenge the traditional understanding of literature’s function in our world. As lovers of music, we seek to support the local musicians and labels that we listen to and love. We also aim to enhance the literary community in Chicago’s South Loop by hosting discussions, readings, and pop-up events. We invite you to browse our store, sit down with a book, and read on.
