Tuesday Funk : October 2011

Meet Our Readers: Cesar Torres

            

Cesar Torres is the author of The 12 Burning Wheels, a collection of stories of weird fiction, published in 2010. His work has appeared in The Willows and in M-Brane SF magazine. He's particularly interested in the secret lives of machines and will hardly turn down an insect as a snack.

He's currently at work on a new novel; updates can be found at his web site http://cesartorres.net.

Meet Our Readers: Suzanne Clores

            
Suzanne Clores is a writer and teacher of fiction and memoir. She has an MFA from the University of Arizona and has published articles and stories in print and radio alike. She attempted to do a master cleanse before last week's trip to Paris, but instead started drinking wine and eating cheese a few days early, about which she is strangely happy.

She blogs for The Nervous Breakdown and Gaiam.com. Her book, Memoirs of a Spiritual Outsider is in its eleventh year of existence, and now available on Kindle.

Meet Our Readers: JD Adamski

            

JD Adamski has had a lot of jobs in his life. From packing trucks 3rd shift in the UPS yards with the ex-cons and tweakers to slinging stouts and rye to hawking vitamins and other panaceas at the medicine show, he's tried his hand at many things. Along the way, he got a degree in Religious Studies and a minor in English at DePaul University.

Currently, he fancies himself a writer and helps curate the infinitely nerd-centric website This May Get Awkward.

Meet Our Readers: Matt Wood

            

Matt Wood is a reader, writer, baseball fan, and father of two living in the West Loop. His current day job is playing on Twitter and Facebook all day for a local university, but in a past life he took a four-year break to be a stay-at-home dad, where he learned the value of patience, quiet time, and a good stain remover.

You can read more of his writing on his website, Wood-Tang.com.

Back in August, Julie Rosenthal gave our rabidly attentive audience not one but two provocative short stories to chew on...

And if you're panting for more great readings like this one, be sure to join us on Tuesday, November 1st, when we present the stellar lineup of J.D. Adamski, Suzanne Clores, Laura Stark, Cesar Torres, and Matt Wood!

Meet Our Readers: Laura Stark

            

Laura Stark is a sometimes writer and performer and an all-the-time music and travel geek. Her twisty path has taken her from video production assistant to financial consultant to improviser to occupational therapist. Most recently, she completed a Master's in health science and is now adjusting to being a normal person again and rediscovering the creative side that was beaten out by school.

In 2002, she produced "Holiday Hangover," a monologue show inspired by her own Thanksgiving breakup, of which you'll get a taste at this Tuesday Funk.

Today is Game 1 of the 2011 World Series, which makes it the perfect day to share co-host William Shunn's predictions for the 2012 World Series. It's gonna be the Cubbies facing off against the Tigers, it's gonna go to seven games, and ... oh, hell, we'll just let him tell you about it himself, as we captured it two weeks ago at October's edition of Tuesday Funk...

And we hope you'll join us in two more weeks, on Tuesday, November 1st, when we present the stellar lineup of J.D. Adamski, Suzanne Clores, Laura Stark, Cesar Torres, and Matt Wood! Be there or you're outta here, slugger.

You'll be giving thanks for the veritable cornucopia of goodness we bring you in November, as Tuesday Funk serves up mouth-watering offerings from the likes of Suzanne Clores, J.D.

Tuesday Funk convenes again Tuesday, November 1, 2011, 7:30 pm, in the upstairs lounge at Hopleaf, 5148 N. Clark St., Chicago. Arrive early, carve yourself out some space in the upper room, and grab a beer from John 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 afterward 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 our readings, which later this fall will feature the likes of Jody Lynn Nye, John Klima, Hanna Martine, Patricia Ann McNair, Debbie Sue Goodman, and many more. You won't want to miss a single delicious dish.
