You’ll have to wait until fall for the beloved annual Twin Cities Book Festival. In the meantime, Print Matters will give you your ink fix. The two-day festival, also at the State Fairgrounds and also organized by Rain Taxi, will offer plenty of good summer reads, whether you prefer a soapy paperback by the pool or an ancient philosophical work with a glass of wine on your patio. Explore some trashy pulp fiction, page through some graphic novels, discover a first-edition collectible, or pick up something for the kids. The event will also include underground publications, vintage maps and historical pieces, and even a vinyl section for music lovers. Have a poet write a piece for you using Tarot cards, get an original coaster printed out by an artist, and listen to live music from Paul Metzger, Jon Rodine, and Dylan Hicks. Find more info at
