The holiday season may be dead and gone, no more than a rattling ghost, but Tuesday Funk is keeping the festive spirit alive with a sampler of a half-dozen sweet or savory readers for your listening pleasure. Come to Hopleaf tonight (Tuesday, January 4th), and join your hosts Sara Ross and William Shunn for the 30th entry in our theoretically infinite Tuesday Funk reading series.
We're bringing you poetry, fiction, essays, and more from the likes of Alyson Lyon, Suzanne Clores, Mare Swallow, Cesar Torres, Valerie Jupe, and Christopher Sweet. That's six great readers for the mere price of a beer. Or maybe two. Okay, forget that New Year's resolution. Make it three.
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.
