The Printer's Ball
I checked this out before when it was held at the Museum of Contemporary Art. It looks like this year's event is going to be much bigger. Info below from their site...
Fifth Annual Printers’ Ball
1104 South Wabash Avenue
Friday, July 31, 2009
5:00 PM - 11:00 PM
Admission to the Printers’ Ball is free and open to all ages.
Founded by Poetry magazine with other independent Chicago literary organizations, the Printers’ Ball is an annual celebration of print culture, featuring thousands of magazines, books, and broadsides available free of charge; live readings and music; letterpress, offset, and paper-making demonstrations; and much more. This year’s Printers’ Ball is co-produced with Columbia College Chicago and the Center for Book & Paper Arts, and is set to take place in the landmark Ludington Building, former home to the American Book Company. Select events during the Printers’ Ball are being recorded for Chicago Public Radio’s Chicago Amplified.
Sneak previews of Printers' Ball publications, preparations, and secret invitations are available at the official Printers' Ball blog, Chicago Poetry Calendar: http://chicagopoetrycalendar.blogspot.com.
