Another month cruised by, another Tuesday Funk delighted our senses. Time, how quickly she passes. Sunrise, sunset.
We started off with a story of love and Chicago with a twist of death (who could resist such a combination?) by Noel Jones, followed by an excerpt from Lori Rader-Day's gripping mystery novel, The Black Hour, and then Mark Turcotte left us shaking with an intense memoir-ish piece about his parents before they ever met.
We needed beer, and we needed it from Mark, who gave it to us in exchange for valid currency.
We were ready for round two! Dmitry Samarov told us two tales of being a cab driver in Chicago, from his most recent memoir Where To? A Hack Memoir. And then Paul McComas and Maya Kuper closed out the night with a moving musical/spoken word extravaganza based on McComas's novel UNPLUGGED that featured, yes, a real-live keytar.
It was a night to remember, and we have two more nights to remember in 2014 (you will remember NO OTHER NIGHTS). Join us on Tuesday, November 4th for Tuesday Funk #75 when we shall delight in the readings of Tom Haley, Maggie Jenkins, Melinda McIntire, Keesha Beckford, and former co-host William Shunn!
