Our November Lineup Is Nine Years In the Making

IT’S OUR 9TH BIRTHDAY. You are morally obligated to come down to The Book Cellar on Monday, November 19th at 7pm. Also, this lineup is going to be so good, we might never need to have another birthday:

Archy Jamjun is a storyteller, writer, professor, server, partner, cat-owner and TJ Maxxsonista. His work has been published by The Rumpus and he has a story coming out this winter in BarrelHouse. He was won The Moth Grand Slam twice and his solo show “A Boy and a Diva” will be featured at Fillet of Solo 1/18 and 1/25.

The product of nine years in San Francisco and eight years in St. Paul, Rosamund Lannin is pleasantly surprised to have lived in Chicago for over a decade. During that time, she has been published by Internet periodicals, performed stories around the city, and consumed many carne asada burritos. These days she’s pretty into speculative fiction, co-hosting lady live lit show Miss Spoken, and trying to write essays that make you feel things, or at the very least laugh. You can find her next week on 11/28 at the last Miss Spoken of 2018 – the theme is Family Feud.

Jeremy Owens ran the New York City Marathon two weeks ago and has maybe stopped wearing his medal in public.

David MacLean is a PEN/American award winning writer and educator in Chicago. His essays have appeared in the New York Times, The Guardian UK, Ploughshares, and on the radio program This American Life. He is the author of the memoir The Answer to the Riddle is Me. In a review of his book, The New York Times called him “an exceedingly entertaining psychopath.” David teaches at Cook County Jail with the organization Contextos.
