Alan DeNiro started the night off right with an alternately dark and amusing allegorical tale from his collection Tyrannia. Cameron McGill followed with a series of his signature rich, lyrical poems, and Patty Templeton treated us to an excerpt from her novel There Is No Lovely End, an Old West story about ghosts and snake oil peddlers.
We took a break, chatted with old friends over beers that Mark so lovingly poured.
After the break H. Melt read an essay and a poem about the ups and downs of queer life in Chicago. And Jasmine Davila finished us off with an essay about travel and the thrill of Priority boarding privileges.
We laughed, we thought about crying, we listened intently. This show was the epitome of our mission to curate an eclectic mix of writers and writing. Won't you join us for the next one? March 3, 2015 at 7:30pm - we've got Keidra Chaney, Mare Swallow, Genevieve Waller, Danielle Nicole Susi, and Tom Underberg!
