About this event:
WHAT: A release party for a great collection of literary works
SO WHAT: Join Belt Publishing in celebrating the release of Rust Belt Chicago, a collection of essays, journalism, poetry, and fiction edited by Martha Bayne. The pieces in this collection tell the vibrant and culturally rich history of our great city, all together singing a forlorn love song to a place similarly marked, if less evident, by deindustrialization and economic decline as Rust Belt sister cities. There will be brief readings by Britt Julious, Kathleen Rooney, Paul Durica, Rob Miller, Kevin Coval, Rayshauna Gray, Zoe Zolbrod, David Isaacson, and Yana Kunichoff, plus a DJ set by Jake Austen.
NOW WHAT: This event is free an open to the public, so go and enjoy some great readings!
