Event Spotlight: 4th Annual Printers' Ball

Whether you're just getting into local publications or you've been reading them for a while and are interested in finding what else is out there, the Printers' Ball is the best place for you to go. Completely free, the Ball features tons of local magazines, posters, broadsides and journals from great publishers like Featherproof Books, Lake Claremont Press, Other Voices, the Neigborhood Writing Alliance and more, all with samples of their work for you to take. This year the Ball will be held at the Museum of Contemporary Art, 220 E. Chicago Ave., and will feature live music and DJs. 5:30-10pm; call Fred Sasaki at 312-787-7070x8005 for more information.
