THE WAPSIPINICON ALMANAC

Please join us for the annual Wapsipinicon Almanac reading to celebrate the publication of the 24th edition! Tim Fay will host the event, joined by some of this years’ contributors, including Jim Walters, Jane Purcell, Dean Rathje, Dena Miller and Lynda Leidiger. Fay, proprietor of the Route 3 Press in rural Anamosa, has edited and published The Wapsipinicon Almanac – roughly annually – using antique letterpress technology, since 1988. Each issue is a mix of fiction, reviews, essays, poetry, art and practical information, packaged in the format and feel of an old-time almanac. “Part New Yorker, part Farmers’ Almanac, this magazine should silence anyone who thinks Iowa doesn’t have a literary culture.”
