Tuesday Funk at Hopleaf

We are happy to announce that our October 6th reading will take place upstairs at Hopleaf Bar, 5148 N. Clark Street (just south of Foster) in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood.

For those who haven’t been there yet, it’s a gorgeous restaurant and bar with some rave reviews and an impressive menu of beer and wine. So arrive early, grab a good table, and order some food before the reading starts at 7 PM.

Here’s a preview of Tuesday Funk #17:

RAYMOND L. BIANCHI poet and Cracked Slab Books co-founder joins us from Series A, MAGGIE KAST reads from her newly published memoir The Crack between the Worlds: a dancer’s memoir of loss, faith and family, solo performer ARLENE MALINOWSKI will bring her theater work to the Tuesday Funk stage, and LAURA TIEBERT will read from her novel in progress in which a woman’s dead mother-in-law starts talking to her from a 1950s Sunbeam mixmaster.

So mark your calendars. Invite your literary friends, your beer drinking friends, and your foodie friends. There’s going to be something for everybody!

    Hi Sarah, thanks for your question. If we can bring in a great crowd to this reading and if we're lucky with scheduling hopefully this will be our new location, but for now we are just going to see how things go in October and take it one month at a time.
