Our theme this month is “Eight.” All eight featured readers will read short original works and ask theme-related trivia questions.
RUI features readings of short original works and themed trivia contests with book prizes for winning audience members. The event takes place in two rounds, with breaks in between each round so that audience members can engage in discussion with each other and with the featured readers about publications and events. We have been holding monthly events since March, 2005—as such, we are one of Chicago’s longest continuously running reading series.
May’s hosts are RUI’s Rob Duffer, Julia Borcherts, Amy Guth, Erin Nederbo, Naomi Huffman, Bronwyn Mead, Frankie Migacz, Jon Natzke and Behnam Riahi.
