An Inconvenient Hour: Prose, Poetry, & Coffee

Chicago’s most awkwardly timed reading series.

Taking place at that odd hour when Saturday is over but Saturday night hasn’t started yet, Edgewater’s friendly neighborhood reading series gathers local literary voices—from Chicago in general and the far north side in particular—to share their work with the community in an intimate setting.
