Just in time for the Printer's Row Lit Fest, New City has published its annual Lit 50 list of Chicagoans making a difference in our town's literary scene. For 2009, the focus is on "behind-the-scenes literati", and features several important folks to the Columbia College Chicago Library:

Randy is also a member of the Library's Friends Council.
#34. Suzy Takcs, Owner, The Book Cellar
Suzy is also a member of Library's Friends Council.
#46. Kristy Bowen, Poet
An accomplished poet and publisher (dancing girl press & studio) in her own right, Kristy is a Circulation Assistant in the Library.
