The Great Chicago Book Sale a Great Success!
The University of Chicago Press held its first public book sale in 26 years on October 7 and 8 at International House in Hyde Park. Thousands of book lovers took this rare opportunity to buy Chicago books at deep discounts. With more than 20,000 books available—all at less than $5 each, the selection included everything from anthropology through zoology. The next sale will be held in 2034. (Just kidding.)
