Voices from the Rust Belt: Anne Trubek

anne trubekThe YSU Center for Working Class Studies and Lit Youngstown present Anne Trubek, Monday, May 14 from 6-7:30 at the Youngstown Historical Center of Industry and Labor, 151 W. Wood St.

Anne Trubek, founder of Belt Publishing & Belt Magazine and editor of recently released Voices From The Rust Belt will talk about the history of the company she founded with a small grant in 2012.

Since then, Belt has emerged as a leading voice in telling the complex story of the ‘Rust Belt’ by way of the very people who live within it or have been shaped by it.

The New York Times:Belt Magazine is dedicated to exploring the reawakened regional identity symbolized by abandoned industrial landscapes, corner taverns and unfancy beer, while also giving writers enough space to push past the Shinola-like clichés.”

The event is free and open to the public, and light refreshments will be provided.
