It’s always fun to read at RUI, where I’ll be appearing for the third time. This reading features trivia, a small book sale, and allusions, all in the confines of Sheffield’s, a proper watering hole. Watch Chicago-area writers read while drinking booze on stage.
Tonight’s theme is “non-denominational”. I’ve composed trivia questions that deal with Christmas in a variety of ways, and I’ll be reading a short bit from The Fugue about two priests who tell each other their dirty confessions. You don’t want to miss it.
3258 N. Sheffield Ave.
Grab a seat and at bite to eat at 7 p.m.; readings start at 7:30 p.m.
