Today is finally the day. There’s a chill in the air, the leaves have just begun their gentle descent. The perfect time to think about death, rebirth, legacy, right? LAST GASP, our first in our series at Uncharted Books, kicks off tonight at 7 p.m. It’s all about the memory we leave behind as writers and performers. Cool and morbid, right?

We’ll have some free snacks. Paper Moon Pastry will roll in with delicious treats for sale as well.

Our readers for tonight include:

Jonas Cannon, Anita Mechler, Daniel Majid, Grant Reynolds, Jes Skolknik, Elizabeth Tieri and Nicki Yowell. Alright!

JUST A REMINDER, Uncharted Books has moved from its old location and is now located at 2620 N. Milwaukee, right around the corner from the Logan Square Blue Line stop.
