Give Thanks to Write Club this Tuesday

For those who need a break from Thanksgiving prep, head to the Hideout, 1354 W. Wabansia Ave., for Write Club's Angstgiving reading on Tuesday, November 20, at 7pm.

Contestants will compete, writing on two opposing topics in three seven-minute bouts. The audience votes for a winner, whose charity of choice will receive all the money collected at the door.

Competing readers and topics include: Nate Craig (GRATEFUL) vs. Ian Belknap (HATEFUL); Chloe Johnston (NATIVE) vs. Mary Fons (FOREIGN); and Gwynn Fulcher (HUNGRY) vs. Emily Rose (FULL).

Instead of watching members of your family fight over the last turkey leg, come to Write Club to see the gravy fly. $10 at the door.
