April 16th — Poet Frank Rogaczewski
May 21st — MFA Open Reading Invitation
June 18th — Horror Writer Frank Stascik
Thanks everyone for coming to Kyle’s event. It was great to see many regulars as well as meet some new readers and attendees. Tamale Hut regular Patty Templeton read from her novellette “The Box.” New reader Tim Moore was a big hit with his short story “Thank God for Facebook.” And our resident horror writer, Chris Hyatt, read a story which failed to get him fired from a job.
Don’t forget to come out to the April 16th event and see and hear, Berwyn’s own, Frank Rogaczewski read some of his poetry.
Kyle Beachy, our reader for this Saturday’s event, just landed a tenure track position at Roosevelt University. Read all about it on Roosevelt University’s MFA Blog or, better yet, come to the reading Saturday at 7pm and congratulate him yourself. Maybe buy him a tamale or buy his book, The Slide.
See you Saturday.
Daylight savings springs us ahead toward our next reading. Chicago author Kyle Beachy will be reading from new and old works at the Tamale Hut Cafe at 7pm March 19th. Kyle will have books for sale at about $12 each. As always autographs are free. Come out to support a local author and have a great meal with friends.
March 19th Tamale Hut Café Reading Series will be proud to welcome writer Kyle Beachy.
Last night was a blast. Scott Blackwood treated Tamale Hut Cafe patrons to the opening chapter from his new book in progress, as well as reading from his last book We Agreed to Meet Just Here. People loved his stories so much, Scott sold all the books he brought.
We also had some new readers participate in open mic: John Wirtz regaled us with an Ode to Bacchus; Keryn Stewart and her friend Matt also read poetry including a collaborative poem they created playing word games over email.
At the end of the night, Scott commented that Jaime’s tamales and chicken tinga were awesome and wished there was a location downtown so he could pick up Tamale Hut Cafe tamales and tinga at lunch or after work. We told him to not be a stranger and come out to our next reading. There’s always more room for tamales, tinga and tall tales.
Less than a week until the next reading. This time The Tamale Hut Cafe Reading Series welcomes award winning author, educator, and Director of Roosevelt University’s MFA Creative Writing Program, Scott Blackwood. So please come out and give a warm welcome to this Texas transplant. As always bring something to read and bring your appetite.
