Midwestern Gothic will be showing up to this year’s Printer’s Ball, an annual celebration of writing and journals held in Chicago. The details per the official website:
The sixth annual Printers’ Ball, which this year takes as its theme “Print Loves Digital,” is an annual celebration of literary culture founded by Poetry magazine and other independent Chicago literary organizations. The Printers’ Ball is produced with the Center for Book & Paper Arts and the Student Affairs Offices of Columbia College Chicago.
What: Sixth Annual Printers’ Ball
Where: The Ludington Building
Columbia College Chicago
1104 South Wabash Avenue
One block west of Michigan Avenue
When: Friday, July 30, 2010 6:00 PM to 11:00 PM
Admission: Free, all ages
The best part is it’s entirely free, and there’s a gaggle of free swag to get your hands on once you’re inside (read: thousands of magazines, books, broadsides, and other takeaways). Wee!
Jeff and I will be walking around, mingling and whatnot, and we should (hopefully) have some goodies to hand out to help spread the word about Midwestern Gothic.
If you live in the Chicago-area, and are thinking of attending, do come say hello (or let us know on Twitter)! We don’t bite!
