Why I Love Belt
I love writing for Belt because it’s worker-owned, progressive, and Midwestern. It means a lot to me to publish my work with a publisher that embodies the sort of ideals I espouse in my writing.

Recommended Titles
Phil Christman, How to be Normal: A really wonderful connection of essays from one of the best cultural critics around.

Martha Bayne (ed.), The Chicago Neighborhood Guidebook: I have an essay in this so I’m not unbiased, but I love this tribute to my city.

Lee Weiner, Conspiracy to Riot: A great memoir about a crucial moment in Chicago history from a fellow social worker.
