Essay Fiesta had a packed house this past Monday! Thank you all for coming out and showing your support for the local live lit community and for 826CHI. We broke a new fundraising record! Good on you!
Our next show is Sept. 17! Co-producer Alyson Lyon is being called away on make-up duty, so we’ll have friend-of-the-show Jen Bosworth subbing. She’s amazing. Trust us!
And without further ado…here’s the September line-up:
- WBEZ personality and The Moth host Don Hall
- Author of Young Mr. Obama Edward McClelland
- Star of Five Lesbians Eating a Quiche Thea Lux
- Host of Off the Eatin’ Path Monte LaMonte
- Gapers Block contributor Nellie Huggins
