Come help out the Chicago Literary Hall of Fame while celebrating the arrival of a new baseball season and spring with Opening Day, a festive themefest of song, story, poetry, and comedy at Mrs. Murphy & Sons on Friday, March 31 at 7:30 p.m.
This free themefest will include performances of songs like Go, Cubs, Go, Take Me Out to the Ballgame, and Centerfield; baseball readings of poetry and prose; and a live auction of Cub tickets, copies of the anthology, Cubbie Blues: 100 Years of Waiting Till Next Year autographed by various combinations of players and authors; and other baseball souvenirs, maybe even a vintage bobblehead or two.
Free peanuts and Crackerjacks, too, for as long as supplies last!
Hosted by J.B. Pariah. Special guests include Donald G. Evans, Salli Berg Seeley, Dave Kossy, and McKenna Liesman.
