Let's be honest, when we scheduled a show for the night before the Fourth of July, we were a little worried nobody would show up. But wow, so many of you did! Thanks for packing the house, Tuesday Funk fans!

Episode 118 of your favorite eclectic monthly reading series got started with a pair of short essays on Barbie and self-image by Tiffany Gholar. Alison Thumel followed her with some fantastic poetry, then Ted McClelland shared the fantastical story of the Hodag from his new book Folktales and Legends of the Middle West.

Bartender Leah refilled everyone's drinks during intermission, then cohost Eden Robins read an essay about villainy and the current state of America, which you can read on the LA Review of Books' website. Next, Siobhan Adcock read an excerpt from her new dystopian novel set in Chicago, The Completionist. Closing out the evening, Mary Winn Heider shared a portion of her own brand-new novel, The Mortification of Fovea Munson.

Wish your summer involved more live lit? You're in luck. We're going to do it again on Tuesday, August 7, with readings by Mare Swallow, Dayna Bateman, Gina DeLuca, Annabel Lang and Kimberly Dixon-Mays. Hope to see you there!
