A misty April evening greeted the live lit faithful on their journey to Tuesday Funk on April 4, 2017. Felix Jung set the mood with a collection of poems, then Melissa Wiley carried it forward with a short story about baking and desire. Tracy Harford-Porter closed out the first half with a story about sisters.

We took a quick break to refill our drinks, and Nestor Gomez told two fun stories -- one about finding his sports niche as a Guatemalan immigrant in a Chicago high school, the other about a flashback while putting a new stereo in his car. Cohost Andrew Huff read some topical haiku, and Kellye Howard read an essay about her existential struggles as a young mother.

We'll be back in action on Tuesday, May 2 at Hopleaf, with readings from Mikki Kendall, Mary Anne Mohanraj, Anne Elizabeth Moore, Mare Swallow and Alicia Swiz. Please join us!
