Please come join us at our inaugural reading! We will feature the work of both Tarfia Faizullah and Cassie Donish.
About the series:
The Filling Station is a free, monthly reading series hosted by Willie James and Matthew Kelsey. It occurs the 4th Friday of each month (with occasional exceptions) from 6:30-7:30 at City Lit Books.
While the series aims to showcase local authors to a diverse and growing neighborhood, it also endeavors to introduce Chicago to the constellation of talent that illuminates the rest of the country. The Filling Station emphasizes poetry, but will also feature fiction and creative non-fiction periodically.
Regardless of whichever genre is shared on a given night, the series will offer proud neighbors and perfect strangers alike the chance to refuel at the end of the week. Everyone is welcome.
