If you remember nothing else about this week’s Frunchroom, remember this: It’s on Tuesday, not Thursday.
But there are lots of other things to remember like Tuesday is the 17th of September. And the show starts at 730pm. And it’s at Beverly Arts Center. And we have five more readers with South Side stories, including … a North Sider!
Veronica I. Arreola is a professional feminist, writer, and mom. Her writing has been featured in USA Today, New York Times, as well as Bitch Media where she serves on the board of directors. By day she works on diversity in science issues at UIC, currently as director of their Latinx in Science office, L@S GANAS.
Veronica hates treadmills and running, so she gets her gym on by indoor rock climbing. She’s always looking for a climbing partner, so if you are ready to tackle your fear of heights, hit her up.
She’s performed at Feminist Happy Hour, Miss Spoken, Tuesday Funk, and the Marrow (RIP). You can find her online at her blog Viva la Feminista or on Twitter & Instagram at @veronicaeye.
Veronica lives in West Rogers Park and has a story to tell about how soccer brought her to South Side coffee shops.
Join Veronica as we kick off Beverly Art Walk Week with the next Frunchroom this Tuesday at 730pm at Beverly Arts Center. A $5 donation is requested, which goes to fund more Beverly Area Arts Alliance events.
