At our Not Your Parents' Valentine's Day Edition of Tuesday Funk, Patricia Ann McNair read us her essay "Return Trip," from the anthology Briefly Knocked Unconscious by a Low-Flying Duck, and it went just a little like this...

Tuesday Funk #55: March 5, 2013

            

Our March lineup at Tuesday Funk is fit to make every other reading series green with envy. The roster will feature Mairead Case, Lania Knight, and Dana Norris, not to mention The Beautiful Anthology's Zoe Zolbrod and 2nd Story's CP Chang. Throw in one of our patented Poems by Bill, not to mention your pick of cold beers from around the world, and you've got all the ingredients for a late-winter warm-up of epic proportions. We'll also be debuting our post-reading Q&A, which you won't want to miss!

The evening gets underway with your co-hosts Sara Ross Witt and William Shunn on Tuesday, February 5th, 2012, 7:30 pm, in the upstairs lounge at Hopleaf, 5148 N. Clark St., Chicago. Arrive early for a table and grab a beer from Mark at the bar (where credit cards are now accepted!). We start seating at 7:00 pm and no earlier. Admission is always free, but you must be 21 or older. And come early or stay late after for some great Belgian-style food downstairs.

At our January 1st edition of Tuesday Funk, Julie Ganey brought us a charming true tale of fantasy, wonder, and fairies. Julie's essay "When the Fairies Came" appears in the new 2nd Story anthology Briefly Knocked Unconscious by a Low-Flying Duck, and when she read it at our microphone it sounded a little bit like this...

Tuesday Funk #53: January 1, 2013

            

Good news. Your friends at Tuesday Funk have your New Year's Day hangover cure all figured out! Just order yourself a little hair of the dog, stir in five great readers with a smidgen of fiction, some essays, and a little poetry, and you'll be feeling better in no time.

Oh, you'd like more details? Well, we'll bring you the next in our series of readings from the new 2nd Story anthology, this time featuring the great Julie Ganey. We'll also have Andrew Huff from Gapers Block on hand, together with Sondra Morin, William Shunn, and Christopher Sweet. Throw in one of our patented Poems by Bill, not to mention your pick of cold beers from around the world, and your 2013 will be off to a fantastic start.

Tuesday Funk #52 (January 1, 2013)

Lineup shuffle for December 4th

            

We at Tuesday Funk are always bummed when our readers must drop out for one reason or another. And since every good story needs a villain, for our December 4th reading we can blame the absence of CP Chang and Derek Silver on The Man. We were very much looking forward to hearing from them both, but unfortunately CP is being sent out of town, whereas Derek is no longer being sent to town. The Man is vicious.

But never fear! We have some world-class pinch-hitters on deck, including Andrew Reilly of 2nd Story, and Jodi Eichelberger from the original cast of Avenue Q, so you won't want to miss us on December 4th, at 7:30 pm in Hopleaf's upstairs lounge.

CP Chang, by the way, will be joining us instead on March 5th, and we'll have Derek Silver at the mike just as soon as his travel schedule allows.
