UPTOWN — A live lit event in Uptown invites people to don sweaters and come to the Holiday Club for a night of story telling titled "Cold Comfort."
Story Club, a live, nonfiction storytelling show founded by writer Dana Norris, hosts monthly shows at the Holiday Club, a bar at 4000 N. Sheridan Road. "Cold Comfort" is the theme of the October show, which starts at 8 p.m. Thursday.
A description for the show invites people to "Come in your sweaters and ward off the cold together with some good, old fashioned story telling." "Cold Comfort," according to the description, explores "What happens when things go wrong?"
"What do you do when the solution to your problem isn't quite right? How do we handle disappointment? This show is all about comforts that just don't quite cover it."
There will be six performers in all, including three featured performers with prepared pieces focused on the theme, and three open mic performers whose work can stray from the topic
Audience members will vote for their favorite piece, and the winning story will be published in Story Club Magazine.
