Celebrate NYE with 2nd Story's Annual New Year's Eve Event

Welcome the New Year with 2nd Story as they celebrate their 6th annual end-of-year reading on Tuesday, December 31, 9:30pm at the Den Theater, 1333 N. Milwaukee Ave. Tickets are $50 and provide a packed NYE experience.

The evening's entertainment, curated by 2nd Story contributor Nicholas Ward and directed by Liz Rice, includes wonderfully crafted stories from student Margaret Marion; Laura Krughoff, author of the novel My Brother's Name; and civil rights activist and writer Shaun Sperling. The storytellers have worked with musicians under the direction of Eric Hazen to craft a soundtrack to their stories. There will also be live music throughout the night.

To make this an extra happy New Year, the ticket price includes delicious bites, a champagne toast at midnight and a free first drink. There will be a limited number of "Pay What You Feel" tickets at the door starting at 9pm.
