Come kick off the holiday season in style tonight with your friends at Tuesday Funk, Chicago's eclectic reading series where good writing and good beer mix!
It our 52nd big episode, and we're pleased to present the first in a series of readings featuring authors from the new 2nd Story essay anthology Briefly Knocked Unconscious by a Low-Flying Duck. Julia Borcherts and Andrew Reilly will be on hand to read their contributions, and we'll also have Jodi Eichelberger, Maggie Kast, and Stephen Markley with us. Throw in one of our patented Poems by Bill, not to mention your pick of cold beers from around the world, and you have the recipe for a fantastic hour or two of live literature.
Hopleaf Bar 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 if you want a seat. As always, the upstairs lounge at Hopleaf is 21 and over only. Remember also that no food can be brought in from the restaurant.
