February 2018 Recap


Molly Dumbleton reads at Tuesday Funk - click to view - mousewheel to zoom
Boy, if you weren't at Hopleaf for Tuesday Funk last week, you missed a great one. On the other hand, it was so packed, you might not have found a seat. Molly Rafferty led things off with a story of fuzzy feelings at a high school party. Next Rachel Hinton read poetry about cancer and plastic, and Molly Dumbleton shared an excerpt of a short story about a woman returning to her home town to clean out her dad's house and running into old friends.

We took a break to refill our glasses, then cohost Andrew Huff read a couple of his topical haiku and Lindsay Porter told a story about how childhood friends change over the years — or don't. Finally, Dave Reidy told the story of his grandfather's greatest triumph.

We'll be back at Hopleaf on Tuesday, March 6 for another edition of Chicago's favorite eclectic monthly reading series, featuring Tony Romano, Ruben Quesada, Sahar Mustafah, David Daskal and Billy Lombardo. Hope to see you there!
