Between 1910 and 1920, Akron, Ohio, was the fastest growing city in the United States, tripling in size and exploding from a population of 69,000 to 208,000. Its period of rapid growth coincided with the expansion of the rubber and tire industry, which, in turn, corresponded with that of the automobile industry. But since the mid-1970s, industry has abandoned Akron, and the city has lost 31% of its population. Once-opulent neighborhoods are now swaths of abandoned homes; the factories that made Akron the Rubber Capital of the World lie dormant. What happened? What next? The Akron Anthology aims to find out.

Edited by Jason Segedy with an introduction by David Giffels and contributions from Rita Dove, Andrew Poulsen, Denise Grollmus and many more.

Pre-orders will begin shipping in September, before the official publication date.
