It was with some mild consternation that I realized we will have not one, but two readers from the North Side at the Frunchroom’s 3rd anniversary show.
Luckily, they’re pretty great. And one of them is Claire Zulkey.
Claire was raised in Evanston and will likely die there. She produces the show Funny Ha-Ha, which returns to the Hideout May 11 (featuring Julia Sweeney). She is also a freelance writer and you can find out a lot more about her at her very old site Zulkey.com.
(Claire is apparently too modest to note in the bio she sent that she is also the author of the YA novel An Off Year, which I really enjoyed even though I am an OA – old adult).
Claire will be telling some stories of her dad’s days growing up in Bridgeport. Don’t miss her and the rest of our readers this Thursday, April 19th at 730pm at the Beverly Arts Center (111th and Western in the Chicago neighborhood of Morgan Park).
