The Chicago Review of Books is now the official sponsor of Chicago’s most eclectic reading series, Tuesday Funk. Join us Tuesday, August 2 (and the first Tuesday of every month thereafter) in the upstairs bar at Hopleaf (5148 N Clark) in Andersonville for live literature and good beer. Click here to RSVP.
Past readers have included Joe Meno, Wesley Chu, Lori Rader-Day, Mare Swallow, Bill Savage, Robert Loerzel, and many more. If you miss a reading, don’t worry: it’s all on YouTube.
Hosted by Eden Robins and Andrew Huff, August’s reading will feature Ryan Bartelmay, Ines Bellina, Vojislav Pejovic, Angel Simmons and Connie Voisine. For more information about this month’s readers, head over to the Tuesday Funk site.
Doors open at 7pm—no earlier, please!—and the show starts at 7:30pm sharp. Admission is free, but you must be 21 or older. Come early or stay after for dinner or snacks downstairs.
Adam Morgan is the founding editor of the Chicago Review of Books and the Southern Review of Books. His essays and criticism have appeared in The Paris Review, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, Chicago magazine, and elsewhere.
