NEW MINI PRINT EDITIONS available now in the SLAG GLASS CITY
THIS BLISSFUL CITY: THE NEW PRINT MINI IS HERE
We are happy to announce the print publication of THIS BLISSFUL CITY—VOLUME 7 of our annual BIG CITIES/LITTLE BOOK series.
In this new edition—documenting last year’s international online reading event—we feature micro-essays by Rima Rantisi, Peggy Shinner, Jasminne Mendez, Ira Sukrungruang, Adrianne Kalfopoulou, Julie Marie Wade, Harrison Candelaria Fletcher, Renee Sims, and Marie Mutsuki Mockett.
Slag Glass City Minis are small enough to hold in the palm of your hand, but large enough to contain the built world. Take one along when riding a bus, train, or plane, and explore the uncertainties of urban bliss.
We will launch THIS BLISSFUL CITY at the 37th Annual Printers Row Lit Fest, the largest free outdoor literary showcase in the Midwest, in the South Loop of Chicago on September 10-11, 2022. Watch this space for more Fall conference, festival, and mail distribution information.
