The Nervous Breakdown is an online magazine featuring the work of published and emerging authors, poets, and other artists from around the world, and they just happen to have a strong presense ins Chicago. A few months ago they had their first reading here and it was a big success. Organized by Gina Frangello and Amy Guth, the reading included a fun game and goodies bags filled with candy. I am not staying they are doing that again, but they are hosting a reading tonight at The Whistler. What I can say is that they have pulled together an awesome line-up.
Featuring authors Claire Bidwell Smith, Greg Boose, Justin Benton and Billy Lombardo, this event will be hosted by Amy Guth. The night begins at 7:30 tonight and ends with music by Tim Seisser. Enjoy the reading and stay for the jazz.
