November 2017 Debrief

Britt Julious November 2017 Tuesday Funk - click to view - mousewheel to zoom
The room at the top of the stairs at Hopleaf filled with expectant audience members, and the 110th edition of Tuesday Funk fully delivered on those expectations!

Henri Harps led us off with the tale of a jazz saxophonist who lost himself in the music. Next, Jeff Ruby shared an excerpt from his new middle-grade novel, Penelope March is Melting, then Britt Julious read an essay about trauma and recovery.

During intermission, bartender Slim refreshed everyone's drinks, and cohost Andrew Huff brought us back into the show with a found text poem about how to's.

Gint Aras then read a portion of his memoir about racism in Cicero, and Parneshia Jones closed out the evening with a selection of poems, including one that had everyone craving an Italian beef. Fortunately, there was plenty of food right downstairs.

We'll be back in the upstairs lounge at Hopleaf on Tuesday, December 5, with readings by James Gordon, Faisal Mohyuddin, Jasmine Davila, H. Melt and Tom Underberg. Hope to see you there!
