Tuesday Funk #106: June 6, 2017


Tuesday Funk, Chicago's favorite eclectic reading series, returns to the upstairs lounge at Hopleaf in Andersonville for its 106th episode! We know* the weather will be beautiful, so we've lined up Lori Rader-Day, Nadine Kenney Johnstone, Scott Whitehair, Juan Martinez and Elizabeth Gomez to draw you back inside! If that doesn't entice you to join us on Tuesday, June 6, we're not sure you're all that interested in good live lit.

As always, doors open at 7 pm (no earlier, but arrive as close to 7 as possible or risk not getting a table) and the show starts at 7:30 pm. Admission is free, but you must be 21 or older.

Please RSVP on Facebook -- and while you're there, like our page so you get our announcements right in your stream. Sponsored by the Chicago Review of Books.

*We hope.
