End of the Year + Chicago Book Expo 2014

Well, that’s it. Thanksgiving is done, Black Friday is just about over, and that’s all there is, right?

No, seriously, thank you for all of your support for and interest in the Tamale Hut Cafe Reading Series throughout 2014. It’s a cliche, sure, but it’s true: we couldn’t have done it without you. Well, I guess we could have, but it’s much less fun when it’s only, like, two or three of us sitting around Jaime’s restaurant and telling stories.

As mentioned in our last post, the Reading Series does take the month of December off, just to accommodate everyone’s holiday whirlwinds. Please save the date, however: we’ll be starting off the eighth year of this series on January 31, 2015, with the always interesting Michael Penkas as our featured reader. More details to come in the New Year!

Also, even though we won’t be holding a reading in December, we have registered for a table at the Chicago Book Expo 2014 on Saturday, December 6. A few of us will be there to promote the various writing events at Tamale Hut Cafe (the Reading Series, the Writers Group, and the Writing Contest). It’s free for all you book lovers out there, so come on out, enjoy some books, and say hi!

Oh, and happy holidays!
