Get Lit: Sun, Surf, Santa Claus

Get Lit: Sun, Surf, Santa Claus

Dive into the holiday spirit with a unique twist as we celebrate the world of beach reads.

  • Grab your picture with Santa, dressed in his tropical finest, and get ready for Santa’s Storytime, where the jolly man himself will read passages from your favorite beach reads.
  • Bring your old books and get some new ones in our Book Swap!
  • Create arts and crafts inspired by the holiday season.
  • Enjoy beer, wine, and the night’s specialty cocktail, Rudolph’s Mai Tai, a classic tiki cocktail (non-alcoholic version also available).
  • Visit the AWM gift shop and our event bookseller to get that holiday shopping checked off your list!

For this event, we have also partnered with Chicago Books to Women in Prison. This great organization distributes paperback books free of charge to incarcerated people nationwide, focusing on all women and trans/non-binary people. Bring additional books to donate to Chicago Books to Women in Prison!

Don’t miss this opportunity to connect with fellow book lovers, indulge in captivating stories, and revel in the magic of the season.
