Mickey Hess, Buckman, Messinger at Quimby’s 9/10

THE2NDHAND, Chicago’s broadsheet and online magazine for new writing, presents:

Mickey Hess (genius, head)
Jonathan Messinger (roll that shit, light that shit…)
Daniel Buckman (psychopathic thinker)

SAT 10 September 2005, 7:30 PM
@ Quimby’s
1854 W. North, Chicago IL

THE2NDHAND’s 17th issue is out, featuring short fiction by M. Lynx Qualey, Joe Meno, and C.T. Ballentine. This reading brings together three of our contributors on the occasion of editor Todd Dills’s birthday, plus Mickey Hess’s rare Chicago appearance. A Louisville writer, Hess joins Chicagoans Jonathan Messinger (Time Out, ThisISGrand.org, the Dollar Store reading series) and Daniel Buckman (author of Morning Dark, et al) and brings his heady mix of slapstick humor and hip-hop synthesis to the Quimby’s riser (not quite a stage, no. . .).

Mickey Hess, author of the 2003 memoir Big Wheel at the Cracker Factory, hails from Louisville, where he writes, teaches, and thinks about hip-hop. Daniel Buckman lives and writes in Chicago. He is the author of a trio of novels, Water in Darkness, The Names of Rivers, and most recently Morning Dark. Jonathan Messinger is Time Out Chicago’s books editor and proprietor at ThisISGrand.org, site for stories of Chicago’s rapid transit. He also curates the “Dollar Store” reading series at Chicago’s Hideout.

    I have read the big cracker and it’s all “cracked up to be” as I was previously told. Love the flavor and the hip hop influence inside it!
