Get a Fright Tonight at Tuesday Funk

Tuesday Funk November 2013

Tonight in the upstairs lounge at Hopleaf, 5148 N. Clark St., Tuesday Funk returns for its latest round of eclectic live lit.

This month, the readers include past Book Club editor Rosamund Lannin, authors Paul McComas and Greg Starrett, medical writer and novelist Vojislav Pejović, GB contributor and That's All She Wrote cohost J.H. Palmer, and Guild Literary Complex Director John Rich.

Halloween is still in the air, and it shows itself in the Funk, too. McComas and Starrett will read a chapter from their book Fit for a Frankenstein in full costume, while Lannin will share a story of family and Halloweens past. William Shunn and Andrew Huff (uh, me) co-host -- and announce who will soon replace Shunn, who moved to New York this summer.

Doors open at 7pm, and the show starts promptly at 7:30pm. The show is free; Hopleaf is 21-and-over.
