Thanks to everyone who made it out for Tuesday Funk's special Lit Crawl Chicago episode! Sandwiched in between Junior Varsity and The Skewer in our usual room at Hopleaf, we did an abbreviated show on a lovely Saturday evening.

Annabel Lang got us started with a funny, bittersweet story about being "the only dyke in the wedding party." Next, Jan English Leary read two short pieces of fiction from her collection Skating on the Vertical. Then Kimberly Dixon-Mays shared a selection of poems, and Gina DeLuca closed out the show with a hilarious character sketch of a woman looking forward to celebrating her honeymoon taking Instagram photos in Paris.

If you missed it, don't worry, we'll have video up on our YouTube channel soon. And you'll have another chance to join us at Tuesday Funk very soon! We'll be back in the upstairs lounge at Hopleaf on Tuesday, Oct. 2, for readings by Jenny Hatchadorian, Henri Harps, Dipika Mukherjee, Angel Simmons and Hannah Gamble. Hope to see you there!

Tuesday Funk @ Lit Crawl Chicago 2018


On Saturday, Sept. 22, Tuesday Funk will once again take part in Lit Crawl Chicago! Join us in our usual spot in the upstairs lounge at Hopleaf at 5 pm for readings by Kimberly Dixon-Mays, Annabel Lang, Jan English Leary and Gina DeLuca!

Lit Crawl Chicago is an attempt to pack as much of the city's literary culture as possible into one walkable radius. It's celebrating voices across the disciplines of writing, whether it's theatre makers, novelists, comedians, storytellers, satirists, live essayists, poetry, and others devoted to the written and spoken word. Events take place in bars, theaters, museums, coffee shops, comic shops, adult shops, and more!

As always, admission is free, but you must be 21 or older to enter. There will be shows before and after ours, so come early and stay late -- or head to one of the many other shows and venues in Andersonville!
