Live Lit Lights Up Tuesday

tuesday funk 09/14We're going right back to work the day after Labor Day. On Tuesday, Sept. 2, two live literary events feature Gapers Block writers and editors, and they're both free.

At 7:30pm, the eclectic monthly reading series Tuesday Funk returns to the upstairs lounge at Hopleaf, 5148 N. Clark St. This month's guests include Scott Smith, Ryan DiGiorgi, Holly McDowell -- as well as GB's music editor Anne Holub and contributor Jasmine Davila. GB's editor and publisher Andrew Huff (that is, me) and Eden Robins and co-host the festivities.

Doors open at 7pm (and no earlier -- really), and it's probably a good idea to get there early if you want to sit. The reading starts promptly at 7:30pm. There's no cover, but you must be 21 to attend. RSVP on Facebook.

At 9pm, Two Cookie Minimum is back at the Hungry Brain, 2319 W. Belmont Ave., The theme this month is "Hidden Treasures" and the lineup includes writer Scott Miles, poet Anthony Madrid, comics artist Zelda Galeswsky, writer at Forgotten Chicago Dan "Pogo" Pogorzelski and Gapers Block Book Club editor Miden Wood. Book Club staffer John "Johnny Misfit" Wawrzaszek hosts and provides delicious cookies for the audience. It's also free, and also 21-and-over.
