Warm Up with Two Cookie Minimum @ The Hungry Brain

Cookie Crumbs cover.jpgThis Tuesday, Jan. 7, shake off Monday's hibernation with monthly live lit series Two Cookie Minimum as it returns to kick off 2014! In addition to the promised presence of cookies, Two Cookie always showcases talented emerging writers, and this month features readers guaranteed to wake you from your wintry slumbers:

Mason Johnson, author of Sad Robot Stories on CCLaP

Jason Fisk, author of self-published novel, Hank and Jules

Cassandra Greenwald, member of Chicago Woman in Publishing, runner, vegan and author

Kevin Budnik, cartoonist and author of collections Our Ever Improving Living Room and Dust Motes

and Jessica Scott, creative writing student at Columbia College Chicago.

On top of edible and literary goodies, a Two Cookie commemorative zine will be available at the event, composed of cartoonist Alex Nall's caricatures and doodles of readers and scenes depicted at Two Cookie Minimum readings of 2013. As usual, the reading will be held at The Hungry Brain (2319 W. Belmont Ave.) at 9pm. Both the event and zine are free, though donations are always appreciated!
