Ugh, Labor Day. What a drag. Always forcing you to take a three-day weekend and attend backyard barbecues where you have to drink beer and talk about your fantasy football team to anyone who will listen. Does anyone actually enjoy it? Thank goodness it’s finally over. Essay Fiesta knows you can’t wait to start celebrating your favorite September holiday: International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer. Do what the United Nations Environment Programme Ozone Secretariat would want you to do – pop those ozone cakes into the oven and bring your hydrochlorofluorocarbons on over to The Book Cellar on Monday, September 16th at 7 pm. Hosts Karen Shimmin and Willy Nast will be spewing some hot air alongside these swell folks:
- Write Club Overlord Ian Belknap
- 8BitBro Writer Jackie Koester
- Social Psychologist Erika Price
- Comedian Dave Stinton
- Actor/Storyteller Paul Whitehouse
Don’t worry – we love preserving the ozone, but we love 826CHI way more.
