On any given night these chairs will be filled by people who are filled with ideas and opinions that are filled with preconceived notions that are filled with contradiction. Listen.
Book Club is a circle of voices within voices, an eavesdropping, a narrative set in a continuous present that reaches out for creative readers. Every text we read shows us how to read it. Read it.
Jon Steinhagen is a member of Signal Ensemble Theatre and a Resident Playwright at Chicago Dramatists even though he majored in English and grew up wanting to be a cartoonist. He reads all the modernism and post-modernism (and beyond) he can find, writes “fictions,” and has never been part of a book club.
