Tuesday Funk #48, "Chicago Post-Worldcon Science Fiction Spectacular": September 4th


chicon-logo160.jpg Tuesday Funk is proud and excited that the 70th World Science Fiction Convention will be coming to Chicago in three short weeks! And It so happens that our 48th big reading will take place Tuesday, September 4th, 2012, the day after Worldcon ends. In honor of Worldcon, we plan to put on an evening of great science fiction readings—a veritable Science Fiction Spectacular—with a group of terrific writers we wouldn't normally be able to assemble here in Chicago.

Our stellar lineup that night will include Crawford Award winner Daryl Gregory, Norton and Morris Award nominee Rae Carson, Rajan Khanna, Adam Rakunas, and Gregory A. Wilson! You'll also get a new Poem By Bill, not to mention your pick of dozens of varieties of cold beer at the bar.

The evening gets underway with your co-hosts Sara Ross Witt and William Shunn on Tuesday, September 4th, 2012, 7:30 pm, in the upstairs lounge at the newly expanded and renovated Hopleaf, 5148 N. Clark St., Chicago. Arrive early for a seat, and grab a beer from Mark at the cash-only bar. We start seating at 7:00 pm and no earlier. Admission is always free, but you must be 21 or older. And come early or stay late after for some great Belgian-style food downstairs.

Please bring plenty of friends, and become a fan of Tuesday Funk on Facebook so you never miss an invitation to one of our readings. Dare we say they're always out of this world?
