Meet Our Readers: Robyn Pennacchia

Robyn Pennacchia lives and writes in a cloistered convent in Chicago's Ukranian Village. She was raised in the Swiss Alps by her gruff but kindly hermit grandfather and a goatherder named Peter until she was adopted by a rich family from England. It was there that she taught Elizabeth Taylor how to walk again, and came up for the idea for The Sunday Night Sex Show, a creative non-fiction reading which she hosts at The Burlington (3425 W. Fullerton) the last Sunday of every month.


Join Tuesday Funk March 6 at 7:30 p.m. at Hopleaf's upstairs bar to hear Robyn and the rest of our remarkable lineup read!
