Our final reader for tomorrow’s edition of The Frunchroom – the last before we celebrate our 2nd anniversary in April – is Eric Charles May.
Eric is the author of the novel Bedrock Faith, which was named a Notable African-American Title by Publishers Weekly. The 2015 recipient of the Chicago Public Library Foundation’s 21st Century Award, Eric is an associate professor in the fiction-writing program at Columbia College Chicago and a former reporter for The Washington Post. His short fiction has appeared in Criminal Class, Fish Stories, F, and We Speak Chicagoese.
In addition to his writing for the Post, his nonfiction has appeared in the Chicago Tribune, Sport Literate, and the 2nd Story anthology, Briefly Knocked Unconscious By A Low-Flying Duck.
A South Side ex-pat – his novel Bedrock Faith takes place here and he’ll be reading an excerpt from it – Eric now lives in Lincoln Park. Join him and our other four readers tomorrow, January 19th at 730pm at Beverly Woods. ($5 donation at the door to benefit the Beverly Area Arts Alliance.)
