Live Lit

Thread took a hiatus from live lit productions in 2018 but we’re gearing up for our biggest show yet! Save the date: Thursday, May 2, 2019 at 7:30 p.m. in Skokie Theatre, Skokie, IL.

 

As the Skokie Arts Commission pick for Artistic Excellence Award 2018, I wanted to throw some love back at my home city by celebrating Thread’s anniversary.

 

Eight seasoned Chicago-area storytellers have been invited to celebrate Thread’s fifth publishing year by reading their work aloud. Storyteller and ticket information to come.

 

It’s a Threadaversary!

 

Thread celebrates it’s fifth birthday in 2019.

Mark your calendar for a night of storytelling
with some of Chicago’s finest tellers at
the Skokie Theatre.
