Lit 50: 2020

Lit 50 is an annual list published by Newcity in celebration of 50 people who have contributed significantly to Chicago's literary life. The list alternates yearly between celebrating authors and those behind the scenes: publishers, booksellers, educators, organizers, and more who help make Chicago's literary communities possible. In addition to the Lit 50, the list also includes a Hall of Fame showcasing those whose contributions have been so great that they've made the list many times.

At the Seminary Co-op, we celebrate 2020's Lit 50 and the incredible literary work produced by Chicago authors. We hope you enjoy browsing the selection on the following pages.
