  • Rebecca Makkai @ Steppenwolf!

    You're Being Ridiculous is super excited to kick of 2019 with a return to Steppenwolf as part of their LookOut Series -- a performance series that presents the work of artists and companies across genre and form. We're delighted to welcome Rebecca Makkai to YBR to share a story with us ... learn a little about Rebecca here and get your tickets!

    Rebecca Makkai is a fiction writer who does occasional live lit so her inner high school theater geek never dies. She has three novels, National Book Award Finalist The Great Believers, plus The Borrower and The Hundred-Year House, and a story collection, Music for Wartime. The story collection was printed on special paper made from that one tree that fell in the woods when no one was there to hear it. She teaches at Northwestern University and StoryStudio Chicago, and she lives on the North Shore, where she enjoys alarming all the Republicans.
