Okay, yes, we might have a little ice on the ground, but any day when the number of readers at Tuesday Funk does not exceed the temperature in Fahrenheit is a good day in Chicago. So take a break from your Seasonal Affective Disorder, come out to Hopleaf tonight (Tuesday, December 7th), and join your hosts Sara Ross and William Shunn for the 29th entry in our theoretically infinite Tuesday Funk reading series.
We're bringing you poetry, fiction, essays, and more from the likes of Johanna Stein, Anne Calcagno, Jotham Burrello, Fraser Coffeen, and Naomi Buck Palagi. That's five great readers for the mere price of a beer. Or maybe two. (Beers, that is. We're pretty sure about the reader count. Though one never knows what might happen behind that mike.)
And yes, today it has also been 69 years since the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, but please, no tasteless jokes about how the battle went down, okay? Too soon.
Hopleaf is at 5148 N. Clark St. in Chicago. The reading begins at 7:30 pm in the upstairs lounge. The lounge opens at 7:00 pm. Arrive early for a seat!
As always, the upstairs lounge at Hopleaf is cash-only, so be prepared. Remember also that no food is allowed in the upstairs lounge, and only those 21 and over can be admitted.
