A bean. The garbanzo bean…found throughout the world in nearly every culture’s cooking, and a staple of the vegan diet…is an amazingly diverse bean capable of being bread flour, one thousand flavors of hummus, is full of protein, can look (depending on one’s perspective) like a heart or a mooning buttocks, and is one of the elder crops of humankind. As such, it is the perfect mascot for a literary magazine.
Readers, Poets, Storytellers, Music with Lys Guillorn, and the greatest homemade hummus in the world! If you love books, stories, shopping local – THIS EVENT IS FOR YOU!

Yes, we’re late with Garbanzo Literary Journal (volume five)…and for that, our deepest apologies – we’re very fond of keeping to our release dates, and this one just did not happen. We hope you’ll forgive us or at least let us somewhat-gently slide…
In the interim, here’s a glimpse of the cover of volume five…
