Where can you find grown women clamoring for fashion and career advice from a teenager? If you're in the Chicago area, look no further than Printer's Row Lit Fest. Books may be the main event here, but one particular attraction at the fest will appeal to style seekers.
Tavi Gevinson, perhaps the world's youngest editor-in-chief and almost certainly Chicagoland's most accomplished 11th grader, will appear at the fest to discuss Rookie Year 1, the compilation of snapshots from the online 'zine she started when she was all of 14. She'll also dole out career advice, because people three times her age commonly approach her in pursuit of this.
Gevinson's resume also includes stints as a singer, DJ, actress, and Harper's Bazaar columnist (basically, she puts the Olsen twins to shame) so really, who knows what else she'll discuss during her appearance?
She'll be on hand at 1pm to sign copies of the book and will answer questions at 3 on the neighborhood-wide event's center stage.
