Lit On Grand - Sat Oct 9th, 11am - 5pm

Venture down to the corner of 19th and Grand Boulevard on Saturday October 9th from 11 am to ~5pm to meet and chat up local authors and publishers, browse used books, and connect with other friendly small businesses and organizations all while sipping a mighty fine cocktail or other adult beverage!

Highlighting and celebrating local Kansas City authors has been something we've prioritized since we first opened our doors. With LIT ON GRAND, a celebration of literature (and other good things), we hope to connect our city’s writers, poets, booksellers and entrepreneurs with all of us who call the Kansas City area home.
