A Glorious and Gutsy Reading this Wednesday

Newly formed storytelling series Guts and Glory returns this Wednesday, April 17, at Powell's Bookstore, located at Chicago 2850 N. Lincoln Ave. The series calls forth performers to tell-it-like-it-is in this series, which prides itself on being uninhibited. Hosts Keith Ecker and Samantha Irby welcome this month's readers Lara Levitan (a fellow Gapers Block Book Club staff), Gwynn Fulcher, Jacob Knabb (editor of Another Chicago Magazine), Ellie Navidson, and Luis Antonio Perez.

Donations, all of which go to either children's or animal care charities, are strongly encouraged. It's BYOB, so consider the donation money saved from avoiding a bar tab. The show starts at 7pm.
