THE2NDHAND Broadsheet No. 30 released
Marking our 9th anniversary, THE2NDHAND's 30th installment, GIVES BIRTH TO MONSTERS by Chicago-based fiction writer and poet Spencer Dew, is a tale of one man's small heartbreak, the backdrop to a contemporary landscape of well-meaning but ultimately shallow political activism, fractured communicative lines, and more ultimately enduring drives toward total inebriation. In classic Dew fashion, he'll have you laughing all the way to brink of the void. Dew is the author of the short-story collection Songs of Insurgency (2008).
Appearing at this reading/celebration with him will be frequent THE2NDHAND contributor Jill Summers, new face on our pages Y.Z. Chin (formerly managing editor of Chicago-based Rhino magazine), and the ever-abundant C.T. Ballentine, our Chicago-based editorial force.
It's FREE, and supported in part by a grant through Poets & Writers Inc. give by an anonymous donor.
