Jac Jemc will be at The Parlor Tuesday November 3rd at 7pm!
Jac Jemc sells books at Women & Children First. Her first novel, My Only Wife, is forthcoming from Dzanc Books in 2012. In the meantime, she has work that will soon be out in Alice Blue, Barrelhouse, Front Porch, Pank and The Rome Review. She is the poetry editor of decomP and a fiction reader for Our Stories. Mostly though, she blogs her rejections at jacjemc.wordpress.com.
Following her 30 minute reading, Jac will take questions from the audience.
As always, the event will be recorded and published on-line for your repeated listening pleasure on iTunes and at www.theparlorreads.com
All readings take place at 1511 N. Milwaukee Ave, 2nd Floor
The Parlor is a monthly reading series sponsored by Bad At Sports Podcast (www.badatsports.com).
This week we return to the local Chicago Art world and the things that mean most to us.
First, we check in with Allison Stites at the Around the Coyote and ask why and how the city’s main emerging arts festival is moving from the community that gave it life. There are some good answers.
Then we check into what is going on with Chicago’s Allrise gallery. It’s director, Lisa Flores, tells us about how she is moving heaven and earth to do weekly shows and how you can get involved.
Finally, the BOOK Review is back! This week we chat about David Carr’s “The Night of the Gun.” Also, we want to let everyone in the world know that celeb author Naemm Murr is reading at the Parlor on October 7th. Be there.
