Poetry at the Fifth Wednesday Journal Release Party

Fifth Wednesday Journal will celebrate the release of its fall 2011 issue at The Book Cellar on November 9 at 6:30pm. Several issue contributors will be in toe to provide samplings from the issue, no doubt a fine pairing with Book Cellar's ample wine selection. Poets Harriet J. Melrose and Roger Reeves, along with Chicago poets Ed Roberson and Packingtown Review's poetry editor Chad Heltzel will read their work for the crowd. The Journal never fails to serve up content diverse in both form and tone, and this group of readers will no doubt follow suit. The Book Cellar is located at 4736-38 N Lincoln Ave.
