News and Updates

Hi! Welcome back! We've been busy. So have you. Here's the latest on Uncalled-for Readings Chicago.

First, the fabulous Tim Jones-Yelvington has decided to take a break from working on this project, bequeathing the series in the meantime to me (this is Megan). Tim may guest-curate an event here or there, but for now, I'm flying solo.

Second, we've got two really terrific readings coming up in 2011:
  • Save the date! Sunday, August 14th at 2 pm at Woman Made Gallery: Uncalled-for is coordinating a reading in conjunction with Woman Made's "Underground" show, curated by Ruby Thorkelson. So far we've got Liz Mason (Caboose, Punk Planet, Lumpen), Jami Sailor (Your Secretary, No Better Voice, Archiving the Underground), Robin Hustle (Mirror Tricks, Curdled Milk, The Skeleton News), and Mairead Case (Punk Planet, AREA, Proximity, the2ndHAND) on board, with a few other folks in the works.
  • In late October, Alvin Orloff will be in town to read from his new novel. Also reading will be fiction/memoir writer Katherine Scott Nelson and poets Cynthia Barounis & Claire Leeds (check out their collaborative chapbook Light Sweet Crude, out now on Dancing Girl Press). More details TBD.
More soon on both of these events - please check back in a few weeks.
