We’re kicking off Giving Tuesday early this year! Your donation today will be matched up to $10K, doubling your impact! If you donate $50 today, the Reader will receive $100.

The Reader is now a community-funded nonprofit newsroom. Can we count on your support to help keep us publishing?

Not to be missed: Soprano Joelle Lamarre in American Chamber Opera’s African version of Puccini’s Madame Butterfly, 4 PM today at the Chicago Temple, 77 W. Washington.

Extraordinary and unforgettable. And—so far—running only this weekend.
