Get Lit: Down with Love

Get Lit: Down with Love

Welcome to GET LIT, the monthly happy hour series from the American Writers Museum! Celebrate Valentine’s Day with stories of rejection from famous writers and read your own rejection letters during our anti-romance open mic. Featuring bitter cocktails and dark chocolates.

Whether you’re looking for love, you’re in love, or you loathe love…this is the anti-Valentine’s Day party for you! You’ll also have access to all of our permanent and temporary exhibits, including our newest special exhibit Dark Testament: A Century of Black Writers on Justice. The AWM’s gift shop will also be open to browse. GET TICKETS HERE.

Get Lit is your new way to enjoy evenings in the Loop: Meet your friends and fellow book nerds for an early-evening treat. On the second Tuesday of every month, from 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm, the AWM serves up drinks, music, special tours and fun activities to get you lit!

Get Lit events are $15 for AWM members and $25 for non-members. AWM members, use the access code that has been emailed to you to reveal the member ticket price. Tickets include admission to the museum and drink tickets for two complimentary beverages. Additional drink tickets are available for purchase. Guests must be 21+ to attend Get Lit. Funds raised at this event will go towards the AWM’s Write In Youth Education Program that serves middle and high school students from under-resourced schools.


The event is finished.
