Rust Belt Chicago Anthology release party

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 this 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. 

Britt Julious, Kathleen Rooney, Paul Durica, Toni Nealie, Rayshauna Gray, Zoe Zolbrod, David Isaacson, Yana Kunichoff, DJ Jake Austen
