Reading Series You Should Know: Guts & Glory

(Image credit: Newcity)

Connecting over real human experience is one thing I find the most pleasurable and the writers of Guts and Glory made me feel a part of the family as I listened. It is no wonder they are self-described as ‘Chicago’s boldest, most bad-ass storytelling event.’

Kristen Nathan reviews Guts & Glory 

Every month, PleasureTown‘s Keith Ecker and MEATY author Samantha Irby, host GUTS & GLORY upstairs at Schubas Tavern (3159 N Southport Ave, Chicago, IL 60657). This bold reading series features established and novice authors opening up about trials and tribulations they’ve faced and what it took for them to overcome adversity. Irby and Ecker’s series has earned a devoted and loyal audience that’s grown exponentially since they founded the series. Each month a new gaggle of readers opens up, and each month audiences come away satisfied and inspired.  // Free show // 21+ //
