One of the “signatures” of our store is…an author’s autograph in his or her book!

Authors visit us almost every day – or speak at Chicago clubs where we bring the books – and they happily autograph extra books for the store. Many of the books are first editions.

Check out our calendar to see if one of your favorite authors is stopping by! If a favorite author is coming to a signing and you can’t be there, we’ll be happy to have him or her autograph (and often personalize) a book for you. Come in, call us at 847 446-8880, or write to us at

We'd love to hear from you!
