Hey everyone, I'm headed to the Tuesday Funk reading in Chicago next week, Tuesday, May 3rd. Tuesday Funk is a reading series that takes place on the first Tuesday of every month at the Hopleaf Bar in Chicago. Rather than repeat what the Funk site sayeth:
Ah, spring! When birds begin to sing, brooks to babble, books to flit amorously in dappled glens … and the forecasts call for snow?! But, come sun, rain, or snow, Tuesday Funk will bring you a veritable forest of talent in May, from the likes of Paul McComas, Tim W. Brown, Bradley P. Beaulieu, Brooke Wonders, and our man in Chicago Scott Smith. Oh, and the beer, the beer—eighty varieties of it upstairs alone! It's as if the ales and the lagers were fooling around when everyone's backs were turned.
Tuesday Funk convenes Tuesday, May 3, 2011, 7:30 pm, in the upstairs lounge at Hopleaf, 5148 N. Clark St., Chicago. Arrive early, stake out a table in the upper room, and grab a beer from John at the cash-only bar. We start seating at7:00 pm and no earlier. Admission is always free, but you must be 21 or older. And come early or stay afterward for some great Belgian-style food downstairs.
Please bring plenty of friends, and become a fan of Tuesday Funk on Facebook so you never miss an invitation to our readings, which in future months will feature the likes of Brenda Cooper, Sarah K. Castle, Holly McDowell, Kelly Swails, Gregory A. Wilson, Vincent Jorgensen, Eden M. Robins, Jerry Schwartz, and more. Our cup runneth over!
I'll be reading a selection from The Winds of Khalakovo. Stop on by if you're in town. We'd love to see you!
