Hessler Reading This Saturday!

The annual Hessler Street Fair poetry reading is always the event of the year in Cleveland poetry, and it looks like this year it will be even more spectacular than ever.  This year's reading will be at the Barking Spider Tavern in Cleveland this Saturday, starting at 3pm, with the winning poems performed on stage at the festival, with a live simulcast on the radio.
And all the poems will be in the Hessler Street Fair Poetry Anthology, released by Crisis Chronicles Press at the reading on Saturday.  Can't make the reading? You can purchase the book at the Mac's Backs booth at the fair, or direct from Crisis Chronicles, or pick up a copy from Mac's Backs.
