PCC’s B Metzger Sampson named in Newcity’s Lit 50 2017

Our Executive Director, B Metzger Sampson, was included in this year’s Lit 50: Who Really Books In Chicago. We love the write up on B, our programs, and the shout out to our fabulous reading series coordinator, Natasha Mijares!

It’s a gift to be a part of such a vibrant literary scene. Heartfelt congrats to all our fabulous friends on Lit 50 for 2017. The literary world is precisebly as strong as its community, and we’ve got a good one here.

Thanks to Toni Nealie and the Newcity team for all your work in supporting Chicago lit culture, too!
