• McKenna at The Frunchroom

    By • Oct 2nd, 2017 • Category: Where I've Been

    As regular Frunchroom fans (Frunchers?) know, we like to pull in readers from near and far to describe a wealth of South Side experiences. Though our next reader is a native South Sider, she’s definitely traveling the longest distance to be at our show this Tuesday at Beverly Arts Center.


    The next show will be at 730pm on Tuesday, October 3rd at Beverly Arts Center (2407 W 111th St, Chicago). A $5 donation to benefit the Beverly Area Arts Alliance is requested.

    Each of the five readers will address the topic of race through South Side stories of identity, racism, family, segregation or integration.

    And they are:

    Tina Jenkins Bell
    Writer, President of FLOW, Educator, and MOB

    Parneshia Jones  
    Author, poet, editor, Chicagoan

    Troy LaRaviere 
    Kay’s son, Zahran’s father, Your brother

    Francine McKenna  
    Writer, reader, teacher, traveler

    Marisa Novara 
    Superpower is curiosity
