Michael Zapata’s "White Twilight" marks the first in a series of broadsheets leading into celebration of THE2NDHAND’s 10th year. It’s the first work of new fiction in a book commemorating the anniversary we’re asking readers to help fund via a Kickstarter.com campaign to raise $2,000+ to cover costs. Gifts for donors are multi-tiered according to donation level, starting at $14, the cover price of the book itself, and running higher. Contribute to the project and reserve your copy now, or click on the book cover thumbnail below.
"White Twilight" gets things going with full throat, a blast of a piece in a tale of the mammoth riots that went down on the border between Chicago's Humboldt and Wicker Park neighborhoods the day the first census to declare white folks a minority was uploaded. Zapata is a Chicago-based writer and educator (also one of the founding editors for a Chi-town favorite in Make magazine); he has produced and written for Second City's Donny's Skybox, the Viaduct, The Trap Door Theater, and the Apollo Theater Chicago. He'll appear in our Nerves of Steel event (every first Tuesday of the month at Hungry Brain on Belmont in Chicago) on December 7.
