We’ve got an amazing new location for tomorrow’s big event: storytelling and song with the Rust Belt Rising crew is hitting Trinosophes TOMORROW, Wednesday, June 25, 7-9pm. Free, and awesome. See you there!
Call it good old-fashioned Midwestern storytelling… with a kick.
Nic Esposito of The Head & The Hand Press is hitting the road with Philadelphia musician Todd Henkin from the band The Great Unknown for a series of performance-based storytelling and song showcasing the fascinating stories collected in The Rust Belt Rising Almanac. When this a-typical book talk comes to Detroit, we’re spotlighting Marissa Johnson-Valenzuela’s story on adapting to Detroit through the community in collective housing, as well as a micro-fiction piece about Hitsville, USA, and art inspired by recycled objects from Detroit artist Cindy LaFerle.
The Head & The Hand Press, a craft publisher in Philadelphia, is bringing this show to the city with the support of Literary Detroit.
The Rust Belt Rising Almanac is a collection of snapshots and stories from writers and artists in America’s Rust Belt Cities: escapes, remains, and models of growth. You’ll learn about projects that are working & the people who aren’t, find a road map for wandering, and green your thumb with an industrial soil-strength planting guide. The almanac may not serve strictly as a meteorological or agricultural guide, but it will help to measure the kind of atmospheric pressure felt between jobs, between communities, between the friends who are still here and the ones not so lucky, bound together by a common question: what’s next for the rust belt?
