**PRINT: FRIENDS FROM CINCINNATI: Installment 24 features this part coming-of-age short by Chicago's Patrick Somerville, author of the Trouble collection of shorts out in 2006. | PAST BROADSHEETS |

The Printers' Ball took place July 20, 2006, at the Double Door in Chicago. THE2NDHAND teamed up with the event's main sponsor, the venerable Poetry magazine, to produce this special issue of THE2NDHAND, which served the dual purpose of announcing the event and being the very apotheosis of our kind of literary bravura.
