Taken from Clair Margheim (Head & The Hand Press) – The Head & The Hand Press will celebrate the renewal and growth occurring in Rust Belt cities with a book release party and a Free Library of Philadelphia discussion panel of the publication, The Rust Belt Rising Almanac.

The night will also include a reading by Almanac contributor Jeffrey Ziga of Little Baby’s Ice Cream atop their parklet, along with an Almanac inspired ice cream flavor. The celebration will continue into the evening with a dance party at the Philadelphia Sculpture Gym’s beautifully renovated warehouse workspace.
