March 2020 Debrief

It was a small but attentive crowd in the upstairs bar at Hopleaf for the 137th edition of Tuesday Funk, but those who attended were rewarded with a fantastic show.

Devorah Heitner got everything started with a personal story, then Edward McClelland shared an excerpt from his upcoming book Midnight in Vehicle City, about the Flint sit-down strike against General Motors. Cohost Eden Robins filled in for a sick Stuti Sharma with an excerpt of one of her science fiction stories.

We took a break to refill our drinks, and then Tom Haley read a short story about a dystopian future, followed by a powerful poem and a story about standing up for himself and a bunch of fellow background actors from James Gordon.

I'm telling you, if you weren't there, you really missed out. But fear not, we'll be back on Tuesday, April 7 with a special lineup curated by poet Hannah Gamble! We'll be featuring readings by Dolly Lemke, Caroline M. Watson, Melissa Blount, Himabindu Poroori and Laura Goldstein. Hope to see you then!
