The last Tuesday Funk in 2018 was a lot like the year itself: a roller coaster of emotions. We got started with Funk founder Connor Coyne, who read an excerpt from his new book Urbantasm featuring a once-in-a-teenaged-lifetime laser show. Next, Dayna Bateman shared a touching story about her father and finding quiet places. Then Cesar Torres read a portion of one of his books, featuring a rather unusual form of artificial intelligence.

We took a break to refresh our drinks, then cohost Andrew Huff shared a few seasonal haiku, followed by an essay from Rosamund Lannin. Finally, James Gordon told a story about racism ruining a good deal.

Miss it? Video will be up soon. In the meantime, join us at the next show on Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2019, when we'll feature readings by Molly Dumbleton, Mike Puican, Sahar Mustafah, Jasmine Davila and our very own cohost, Eden Robins! See you there!
