A few weeks ago, we told you about the “Terkelogues” show at Chicago’s Rhinofest. This Sunday, February 8, is the second and final performance. The show features Jenny Magnus, Beau O’Rielly, and Jeremy Campbell, and is co-written and co-directed by Stephan Brün and our own Tony Macaluso. This Sunday’s show has a little something extra – author Stuart Dybek will be joining the performance to read a related blizzard-set story from his recent story collection, Ecstatic Cahoots.
We’ve also recently been writing about the Reader‘s Greatest Chicago Book Tournament. Did you look closely at the seed map on the Reader‘s website? Look again (scroll down). There’s a pretty good chance that we could see a Terkel/Dybel book-off in the near future. But before the competition begins, they’ll be collaborating… maybe synthesizing is better… this weekend at Rhinofest. Come check it out!
