An Evening with Ruminate in Chicago

by Ruminate Magazine February 20, 2012

Join Ruminate Magazine contributors Allyson Armistead and Josh MacIvor-Andersen, along with the Ruminate staff, for conversation and a free reading at the historic downtown Hilton Chicago on Friday, March 2nd. Other Ruminate contributors that will be reading their work include Tania Runyan and Jeffrey G. Dodd, in addition to readings from friends of WordFarm Press and Rock and Sling Journal -- Bryan Dietrich, Ruth Goring, Christopher Howell, Amy McCann, and Alan Michael Parker. Grab a drink at the bar and then head to the 3rd Floor. We'll be in the Wiliford B Room, and we'll be serving light appetizers. The reading will begin at 7:00 and each reader will read just a short sampling of their work, which makes for a lively and interesting evening. We hope to see you there!
