Tuesday Funk : Reading #111

Reminder: Tuesday Funk #111 is tonight!

            

It's the last Tuesday Funk of the year, and who knows if we'll all survive 2018! Why not hedge your bets and join us tonight. There will be good writing and good folks and enough booze to last through the end of the world. Join co-hosts Andrew Huff and Eden Robins, as well as the incredibly talented lineup: Jasmine Davila, H. Melt, Tom Underberg, James Gordon, and Faisal Mohyuddin!

Our readings take place at Hopleaf Bar, 5148 N. Clark St. in Chicago. We get started promptly at 7:30 pm in the upstairs lounge. Arrive early if you want a seat -- but no earlier than 7:00 pm. Our readings are free, but only those 21 and over will be admitted. No food can be brought in from the restaurant. See you there!

Tom Underberg lives and works in Evanston, which is basically Chicago if you zoom the map out far enough. He's had a variety of jobs that sound more interesting in a list than they were in real life: bartender, book binder, dishwasher, consultant. Before he started work on his first novel, he published short fiction in magazines like Weird Tales and The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction. He's been claiming he's no more than 10 to 15 thousand words from finishing the first draft of that first novel for a while now, so hopefully by the time we read this bio at Tuesday Funk, the book will be done.

Please join Tom and our other amazing readers on Tuesday, December 5, 2017 in the upstairs bar at Hopleaf. Doors open at 7pm, and the show starts at 7:30. It's free, and 21-and-over. RSVP on Facebook.
