The Chicago Review of Books is the official sponsor of Chicago’s most eclectic reading series, Tuesday Funk. Join us Tuesday, October 4 (and the first Tuesday of every month) in the upstairs bar at Hopleaf (5148 N Clark) in Andersonville for live literature and good beer. Click here to RSVP.
Hosted by Eden Robins and Andrew Huff, October’s reading will feature Tom Haley, Kevin Smokler, Henri Harps, KB Jensen and Jen Masengarb. 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.
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.
