Please join The Head & The Hand Press and the Free Library of Philadelphia's Culinary Literacy Center for a night of stories, recipes, cooking, and readings from Corn Belt Almanac. Corn Belt Almanac is a collection of stories, essays, triumphs, and reflections done in the style of an old time almanac about our largest cultural ingredient: FOOD.

Food and literature are the two great pleasures in life and we are pleased to be able to offer both at this special event.
