It’s always wonderful to see familiar faces. It’s even better to see familiar faces and hear new works at the same time!
This month, we’re thrilled to welcome back Janet Wondra as our featured reader. Janet has previously delighted the THC Reading Series audience with her worldly, thoughtful poetry. This time around, she has an assortment of new fables and fairy tales to share with us; she’ll also be promoting Oyez Review, Roosevelt University’s literary magazine, of which she is the editor and publisher.
Janet’s reading will begin at 7 p.m. on March 28; an open mic will follow her presentation. As always, the event is free, and Tamale Hut Cafe will have food and drink available for purchase. For those who have never attended one of our shows, Tamale Hut Cafe is located at 8300 W. Cermak Road in North Riverside.
See you on March 28!
Author’s Bio: Janet Wondra is currently venturing into the world of narrative, writing short pieces in the vein of folk tales and fables and what might be their sly modern descendants. Her largest body of work, though, is in poetry and creative nonfiction. Her most recent poetry chapbook is Bad Attitude (Finishing Line Press), and individual poems have appeared in The Southern Review, Denver Quarterly, Michigan Quarterly Review, and Witness. Her creative nonfiction is included in Short Takes: Brief Encounters with Contemporary Nonfiction (Norton) and In the Middle of the Middle West: Literary Nonfiction from the Heartland (Indiana University Press) as well as in such journals as Bellingham Review and Connecticut Review. This summer her essay “Cleaning Theory” will appear as the archival feature on The Southern Review’s website. She teaches creative writing at Roosevelt University in Chicago, where she is editor and publisher of Oyez Review.
