Some "Truth" on Reading Under the Influence

Reading Under the Influence brings you the Truth (that's this month's theme). Wednesday, November 2nd the theme will be tackled by Scott Whitehair (host of This Much Is True), Jill Summers (recent winner of Literary Death Match), John Wawrzaszek (host of Two Cookie Minimum reading series) and Cortez Bryson (writer and jazz musician). For those who don't know, each reader gets to read original work and then a published work followed by trivia. RUI's home is Sheffield's, 3258 N. Sheffield Ave, $3, 7 p.m.
