Irvine Welsh Puts his Dukes Up Tuesday (sorta)

On Tuesday July 2 the Put 'Em Up series at Public House Theatre, 3914 N. Clark, showcases a live reading from Scottsman turned Chicagoan Irvine Welsh. Welsh will read from a work-in-progress called Creatives (working title). The piece, said to be a dark comedy thriller, is co-written by fellow Chicago author Don De Grazia (American Skin). Both authors are known for gritty, slice-of-life storytelling.

The reading begins at 7:30pm, a $7 cover includes a free drink.
