THE2NDHAND Questions Your Nerves

Contributors of the quarterly Broadsheets and online literary magazine, THE2NDHAND, are calling you out. Tonight they beg the question, so you think you have nerves of steel? In the first installment of what will soon become a monthly Monday series, host "Harold Ray" (better known as coeditor Jacob Knabb) along with playwright Chris Bower, writer and performer Jill Summers, and literary addict Amanda Marbais, will present a performance ready to deliver verbal fireworks.

The idea behind the series is to feature one writer every month--tonight there will be two--who will comment on the question in the reading's title in any manner he or she sees fit. To witness the literary witticisms of these authors, head over to Quimby's Bookstore at 1854 W. North Ave. in Wicker Park. The festivities begin at 7 p.m. and--another bonus--admission is free.
