May Featured Reader Shawn Shiflett

Tamale Hut Cafe is pleased to present Shawn Shiflett as our Featured Reader for May. Join us on Saturday the 26th at 7:oo pm as he reads from his works.

Shawn grew up in Chicago and is the author of short stories and two novels: Hey, Liberal! (Chicago Review Press), a semi-autobiographical story about a white boy going to a predominately black high school in Chicago just after the Martin Luther King Jr. riots, and Hidden Place (Akashic Books), which was included in Library Journal’s “Summer Highs, Fall Firsts,” a 2004 list of “most successful debuts.” He is an Associate Professor in the English and Creative Writing department at Columbia College Chicago.

As always, there is no cover. Tamale Hut — Supporting the Arts!
