Chicago is a haven for booklovers thanks to its eclectic selection of bookstores and booksellers. It’s no surprise Chicago is brimming with literary lairs – Ernest Hemingway was born in a Chicago suburb, poet Gwendolyn Brooks spent her whole life in Chicago, and Saul Bellow attended and later taught at the University of Chicago.
