Produced by RedEye's big sib Chicago Tribune, it's the largest free literary festival in the country, and this year, there's a lot to celebrate. In addition to it being the fest's 30th anniversary, RedEye will also have its very own stage booked with fun events (see schedule below).

Luckily, our staffers have made their picks to help you decide what should make your short list.
