The series step apart from other readings in it's efforts to bring in musicians, artists, fiction and poetry into a literary cabaret where authors read their own work as well as the work of other influential authors. With drink specials, great readings, and a free party following every reading. Tonight's edition features authors Deb Olin Unferth. Bio below. 21+

Deb Olin Unferth grew up in Chicago, but hasn’t stayed put much since. A short list of her past mailing addresses would include apartments in Denver, Birmingham and New York City, along with a number of residences — some undeliverable — in Mexico and Central America. Her lifetime of continent-trotting influenced many of the stories in her first book, Minor Robberies, a collection of short shorts published by McSweeney’s as one part of a three-book box set, One Hundred and Forty-Five Stories in a Small Box (Dave Eggers and Sarah Manguso authored the other two books). Unferth lives in Lawrence, where she teaches creative writing at the University of Kansas.
