November has arrived, bringing with it the first appearances of wintry weather and an onslaught of holiday events. Kick your month off by attending literary events at the annual Lit & Luz Festival, which highlights authors from Mexico and the U.S., or catch the final few weeks of this season's Art on theMART projections downtown. Later in the month, get a head start on Christmas in Chicago by touring glittering light displays at Chicago gardens and parks or check out the first few days of the Christkindlmarket, which is returning to Daley Plaza and Wrigleyville with all the glühwein, spiced nuts and holiday ornaments you could ever desire. Finally, make plans for Thanksgiving in Chicago, whether that means pre-ordering your turkey or stocking up on the tastiest pie Chicago bakeries have to offer. Say goodbye to fall in Chicago (and the leaves on the trees) with our list of the best things to do in Chicago this November.
