CLOSE-KNIT: The family you have is sometimes the family you make. And sometimes it’s just the family you have. In the frosty cold of Chicago’s ice-hell, let’s hear stories about how people got close, were always close, or just how to crochet a really good sweater. I mean, it’s cold out there.
Our Featured Storytellers this month are:
• Juicy story maven and attorney at law KAREN CLANTON!
• Comedian and renaissance lady LIZ GREENWOOD!
• Story Club producer and zinemaker extraordinaire CYNTHIA E. HANIFIN!
Hosted by ANDREW MARIKIS & co-produced by CYNTHIA E. HANIFIN!
We’ll also be sharing the love this month by collecting donations for ICIRR – The Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights.
If you have a true story you’d like to tell about closeness (or anything else you want to share with our audience), sign up for our Open Mic!
These are all of the night’s happenings:
@ 6:30 PM – A FREE WORKSHOP with Story Club producers for anyone who has a story, an idea for a story, or just the jitters!
@ 7:30 PM – Open Mic sign-up starts (2-3 open mic stories every month!)
@ 8 PM – Live Storytelling Show!
$5 tickets before the show, $10 tickets cash at the door. Cash bar! (We are no longer BYOB, but we offer all the delightful booze you can drink at our cash bar!)
The Co-Prosperity Sphere is the glorious radio station/performance space/art gallery that houses our enthusiasm! Cozy up to the lovinest room in Chicago!
