Novel-T traveled to Chicago for the 2012 Printers Row Lit Fest this weekend and had a great time at the festival and around the city at large.
Among the countless folks that came by the Novel-T booth were a photographer and reporter from The Chicago Tribune, who were kind enough to include Novel-T in their festival coverage:
"On Polk Street, there was Novel-T, a Brooklyn-based business selling mock literary baseball jerseys. The hottest seller was Edgar Allan Poe. The front of the shirt showed a raven and the back read "Poe" with, beneath it, the number, "13." But "Eggers" (with a picture of a stapler on front, a reference to Dave Eggers' memoir "A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius") wasn't doing too badly either."

True, it's only May, but it's never too early to start thinking about (and collecting ballot nominations for) the Novel-T ROY.
No, this isn't another Roy Campanella post. And we're not referring to Roy Hobbs from The Natural--I'm sure we'll get to that soon enough.
We're talking about the Novel-T Rookie of the Year.
This year it's a race between Blake, Eggers, Emerson, and Hurston. Vote for your favorite here.
The Novel-T Rookie of the Year will win a great big prize of some sort, which will likely be shared among the fans. Either one of those tremendous bags of popcorn that you see sometimes vendors dig into at minor league ballparks, or something else.
If you have ideas on what the prize should be, let's hear 'em!
