Willy Nast isn’t feeling well. Oh wait, I mean, Willy has to work. That sounds convincing, right? ANYWAY, Willy has to miss the show, and now that he’s [cough, finally, cough] out of the way, September’s Essay Fiesta is going to be 100% free of Willy.
So put on your wetsuit and swim on over to The Book Cellar at 7pm on Monday, September 16th. Host Karen Shimmin will be singing the theme song solo and basking in the talent of this lineup of writers, none of whom are Willy:
- Author Jac Jemc (who is about to drop a brand new book)
- Very Tall Ohioan Jeff Miller
- Comedian/Playwright Julia Weiss
- Writer/Scholar/Activist Joy Ellison
- Improv/Leadership Expert Michael Kessler
The show is free, as always, but bring a cash donation for the kids at 826CHI.
