Join us to celebrate the publication of Picador’s Voices From The Rust Belt, edited by Belt Publishing founder Anne Trubek. Voices collects the best of Belt Magazine and our city anthology series, and features essays by Martha Bayne, Ryan Schnurr, and John Lloyd Clayton — all of whom will read at this sole Chicago event — plus a stellar roster of other Belt writers. There’s a $12 cover; we promise to make it worth your while!
“These essays go a long way toward expanding the narrative about the Rust Belt in that they refute stereotypes, explore a vastly varied series of experiences, and provide a valuable history lesson on industrialism.”– Publishers Weekly
“Timely . . . [the collection] paints intimate portraits of neglected places that are often used as political talking points.”―Booklist
