The Frunchroom returns with an 8th-anniversary show

It started in 2015 as a live-reading series in the side room of a bar on Western Avenue.

It survived the pandemic, and it’s now ready for an eighth-anniversary celebration.

The next edition of The Frunchroom, a local storytelling series, will take place on April 13, at 7:30 p.m., at the Beverly Arts Center (BAC), 2407 W. 111th St.

Speakers scheduled to appear include Michelle “Chellee” Rashad, executive director of the nonprofit organization Imagine Englewood If; Erika Sanchez, the author of “I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter” and “Crying in the Bathroom”; Megan Stielstra, author of “The Wrong Way to Save Your Life” and “Once I Was Cool’”; Shermann “Dilla” Thomas, who is known as Chicago’s Tik Tok historian and has a catchphrase of “Everything dope about America comes from Chicago”; and Carly Oishi, a Morgan Park resident and veteran Chicago storyteller.

A $5 donation is requested for the upcoming show.
