If you’ve been to a Tamale Hut Presents reading any time within the past few years, you know Brendan Detzner. And if you don’t know Brendan Detzner,  you’ve been missing out on some excellent horror stories.

Brendan has a new short story collection, Beasts, coming out at the beginning of October. This month, we’re giving him the spotlight so that he can show us what he’s been working on. If you like your stories surreal, amusing, and incredibly haunting–well, you’re probably a regular guest at our readings, to be honest. But this is definitely the month for you.

The reading will begin at 7 p.m. with Brendan’s presentation; an open mic for writers in all genres and fields will follow. As always, admission is free, with food and drink available for purchase. And for those who have never joined us, Tamale Hut Cafe is located at 8300 W. Cermak Road in North Riverside, just east of the intersection of Cermak and 1st Avenue.

See you on the 19th!
