Spring is finally here, so it seemed right to celebrate and feature five writers this month rather than the usual four.
From the masterful short stories of Daniel Libman, Patricia Ann McNair and Molly McNett, to Samantha Hoffman’s bittersweet novel of middle-age love, to Croatian writer Robert Perisic’s powerful narrative about a Zagreb that is just on this side of anarchy, there will be something for everyone to discover, enjoy, be moved by. 7 p.m., Black Rock, 3614 N. Damen. We look forward to seeing you there!
Our March reading event features four of our favorite writers from StoryStudio Chicago; Rebecca Makkai, Steve Trumpeter, Shannon Heffernan, and Dana Norris. We’re extremely excited that they will be our March feature, presenting a new slate of their instructors and students. 7 p.m., Black Rock, 3614 N. Damen. See you there!
In addition to being our featured organization for this month, the nonprofit Rose Metal Press will also provide two of its authors: Kyle Minor and Aaron Teel. Paul Jones and Randy Richardson round out the night. Join us at 8 p.m. at Black Rock, 3614 N. Damen.
