Prairie Lights

Please join us for the annual Prairie Lights reading for The Wapsipinicon Almanac. This year marks the 22nd edition, and contributors Brian Gibbs, Glenn Freeman, Tom McKay, Leslie Caton, Jane Purcell and Jonna Higgins-Freese will be reading at the event.

Tim 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.” —Joshua Kucera
