Thanks, City of Chicago!
Monkey-Rope Press hasn't been without news, just without time to tell about the news. Apologies for the silence!

Thanks and thanks again to the City of Chicago! "In the Sounds and Seas: Volume II" won a Community Arts Assistance Grant to fully cover the costs of materials and production.
