Chicago International Film Festival/AARP Book Drive

The Chicago International Film Festival is working with AARP to introduce children to amazing literature in addition to amazing films, and we need your help!

Between now and October 24, bring in new or slightly-used elementary-age books to Festival office (30 E. Adams, Suite 800. Open 10-6 Monday-Friday) or AMC River East 21 Festival box office (322 E. Illinois. Open 7 days a week).

Books will be donated to AARP Experience Corps, who will then distribute the books to children in CPS schools.

With any questions, please contact Erin Payton at
