grown folks stories silver room

Samantha Irby, blogger at Bitches Gotta Eat is all ears for:

Grown Folks Stories We are incredibly lucky, as writers and readers, to live in a city that has so many live literary events. There are so many shows that it can be pretty overwhelming to figure out which ones to go to. They're all good, and you won't be disappointed no matter which one you choose.

One of my favorites, though, is Grown Folks Stories. Held the third Thursday of every month in Wicker Park at the Silver Room, the vibe is different from most of the shows in the city. No all-star lineup, no reading from prepared text, just a bunch of warm familiars hanging out, drinking wine out of plastic cups and telling all kinds of personal stories.

But only for five minutes. That's the deal: you get five minutes to make a room full of people laugh, or cry; then wash, rinse, repeat. It's an amazing thing to witness. I hope to see you there and I want to hear your story. You've got five minutes.
