McKenna at The Frunchroom

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
