Only a real ninnyhammer (foolish person; simpleton) would give in to their clinomania (excessive desire to lie down or remain in bed) and miss the October edition of Essay Fiesta.
So put on your spraunciest (most dapper or smart in appearance) footwear and step on down to The Book Cellar on Monday, October 17th at 7pm (the day after National Dictionary Day). Your ostrobogulous (slightly risqué or indecent; bizarre, interesting, or unusual) hosts Karen Shimmin and Willy Nast will be joined by the following leggiadrous (elegant and graceful) readers:
- Performer/Writer/Farmer Stephanie Douglass
- Satirist & Clown Noir-ist James Finn Garner
- The Miles Between Me Author Toni Nealie
- Miss Spoken Co-Host Carly Oishi
- Writer Scott Stealey
Don’t forget that Essay Fiesta’s goal is to quomodocunquize (make money in any way possible) for 826CHI. We’ll be sure to smicker (look amorously) at you if you bring cash to throw into our donation basket.
