Self Publishers of Chicago has The Last Gasp This Weekend

Self-Publishers of Chicago hosts The Last Gasp reading on Sunday, October 6, 7pm at Uncharted Books in their new location at 2620 N. Milwaukee Ave. Affectionately known as SPOC, Self-Publishers of Chicago is an organization focused on building a community among independent writers and publishers. Aligning with the changing of the seasons, Last Gasp refers to one's legacy and the memories that will remain. For the reading SPOC poses the question: What if you only had one piece of work to sum up your life?

Invited readers will answer how they see fit, be it through poetry, creative non-fiction, visual art or performative reading. The lineup includes zinester Jonas Cannon, Anita Applebomb Mechler, writer Daniel Majid, comic artists and poet Grant Reynolds, music columnist for Maximum Rock and Roll Jes Skolnik, the head of Back to Print Publishing Elizabeth S. Tieri, and SPOC executive-in-chief Nicki Yowell.

Sweet and salty snacks from the Clancy's brand family will be served. The reading will be enlightening-- you might hear about the meaning of life, or at least have a salty snack attack.
