MEDIA SPONSOR EVENT: WBEZ is a media sponsor of Pop-Up Magazine, presenting its first themed show this fall — The Escape Issue — produced in collaboration with The California Sunday Magazine. We could all use a little escape. From politics. From the past. From hostile governments and climate change. From the Internet. From negativity. Maybe even from ourselves. Join Pop-Up Magazine for an immersive night of storytelling devoted to escapes big and small, daring and mundane, physical and mental. 

Contributors to Pop-Up Magazine's Escape Issue include comedians Jo Firestone (Shrill) and Jordan Carlos (HBO’s Divorce; Black Mirror; WNYC’s Adulting); poet Sarah Kay (Project VOICE); writers Lolly Bowean (Chicago Tribune), Chris Duffy (Wyatt Cenac's Problem Areas), Clio Chang (Jezebel, The New Republic), and Keri Blakinger (Houston Chronicle); musician Left at London; photographers Lucas Foglia (International Center of Photography, SF MOMA) and Lisette Poole (Time, The Atlantic, The New York Times).
