We’re excited to feature Eve L. Ewing as a Libro.fm Bookstore Champion! A writer, scholar, and cultural organizer, Eve uses her platform to advocate for local businesses and independent bookstores. She’s curated bookstore windows, considered collaborating with a bookstore on a book-mobile, and urged followers to support their bookstores throughout the pandemic. Bookstore Champions receive a year’s supply of audiobooks, Libro.fm gear, and are celebrated for their advocacy across Libro.fm channels.

There are New Yorkers and there are Californians, both of whom will claim coastal supremacy over our city. But many Chicago people, untempted by either pole, often share a grittier devotion to their city, determined to make it better. Eve Ewing is a Chicago person. Born and raised in Logan Square, the 31-year-old Dr. Ewing has lived virtually her entire life in this city. She knows Chicago, from its heart to its bones. She knows the north, south and west, the gentrified neighborhoods and those who have been displaced.

What would Reed Richards be without his journals, weeklies, and textbooks to study? What would Peter Parker be without his school library? Bruce Banner? Tony Stark? Riri Williams, Amadeus Cho, Hank Pym, Lunella Lafayette, Beast? Each of these characters, and countless more across the mighty Marvel Multiverse, became who they are by reading, studying, learning and evolving thanks to the creativity and knowledge they found in books. Just like the real-world writers and artists who tell their stories, including Champions and Outlawed writer Eve L. Ewing.
