The August "Quarantuesday Funk" went very well. Tracy Harford-Porter kicked things off with an excerpt of a novel she's been working on, then Kyle Thiessen read a portion of a fake novelization of a movie that doesn't exist. Next, Erin Watson shared several poems.

We took a moment to collect ourselves, then Jocelyn Geboy read an essay about death, grief and community. Last but not least, Norman Doucet talked about George Floyd, systemic racism and racial identity.

It was a classic Tuesday Funk show, funny, strange, poignant and serious in turns. The only difference being it was on YouTube Live. If you missed it, you can still watch the episode in full below, or hop over to YouTube to peep at the chat.

We hope you'll join us for the next edition of Tuesday Funk on Tuesday, Sept. 1 at 7:30pm, once again on YouTube Live. We'll be featuring readings by Maggie Kast, Kathleen Rooney, Veronica Arreola, Keidra Chaney and Rayshauna Gray. Hope to see you there!
