April 2018 Debrief

Levi Todd at Tuesday Funk - click to view - mousewheel to zoom
The weather was classically "Chicago in early spring," but your favorite eclectic monthly reading series kept everyone warm and dry in the upstairs bar at Hopleaf on April 3.

Kelly Swails started things off with an essay about the change of faith necessary to go from being a Cardinals fan to a Cubs fan. Next, Ruben Quesada read some deeply personal poetry, then Cinnamon Cooper shared a story of discovering freedom as a child in a domestic violence shelter.

We took a break, then cohost Andrew Huff shared a couple of his patented topical haiku, then Levi Todd recited poetry that both challenged and amused the audience. Finally, Nestor Gomez told a story about immigration, followed by a heartfelt poem about forgiveness.

Tuesday Funk will be back at Hopleaf on Tuesday, May 1 with readings by Rachel Arndt, James Finn Garner, Michi Trota, Elizabeth Metzger Sampson and Felix Jung. Hope to see you there!
