Prairie Lights

Please join us for this special event for Prairie Gold: An Anthology of the American Heartland, from Ice Cube Press. Prairie Gold is a collection of all new writing that explores and celebrates Midwestern culture and identity. The event will feature nonfiction by Will Jennings and Meghan Brown, fiction by Barbara Harroun, and poetry by Salvatore Marici. Publisher Steve Semken and editors Lance M. Sacknoff and Stefanie Brook Trout will give remarks, introduce the readers, and answer questions about the project.

"Prairie Gold ... investigates, challenges, and redefines the varied perceptions of the Midwest, and, most importantly, their literary art invites us to gaze with renewed appreciation on the environmental beauty, nourishing agriculture, and innovative and creative people of the American Heartland."
