Quickies!, “Chicago's favorite reading series,” is dedicated to flash fiction and is hosted by Mary Hamilton and Lindsay Hunter. Each reader has four minutes to read a complete work of short prose. Those that go over the time limit are whistled off stage. In this podcast, the September show was a special tribute to Lindsay Hunter (Daddy's, out now from our friends at featherproof books) and her unique reading style. It features: Kyle Beachy, Tim Jones-Yelvington, Scott Stealey, Zach Dodson, Mary Hamilton, Lindsay Hunter, Jac Jemc, Margaret Chapman, Matt Trupia, Brandon Will and Tobias Amadon Bengelsdorf.
