This past Essay Fiesta was off the shelf! The Book Cellar was packed, and our readers made it happen in a big way. We laughed, we cried… it was ten billion times better than Cats. A big thanks to our audience, our readers, 826 Chicago and of course, the Book Cellar.
Speaking of the Book Cellar, can we just take a moment to tell you how much that place rules? A savvy staff, fabulous books and a killer cafe make this indy bookstore simply the best. If you want more B-Cell in your life, head over there this Thursday, Sept. 22 to hear Mira Bartok, a New York Times best-selling author, read from her memoir The Memory Palace.
So thanks again to the Book Cellar, 826CHI, our readers and, of course, you lovely audience members for making Essay Fiesta what it is. The next show will be on Oct. 17. And mark your calendars for our anniversary extravaganza, which will take place on Nov. 21.
