Essay Fiesta turns 10 years old this month, which is 70 in dog years, 56 in cat years, and 127.8 in live lit years. Like many dogs and cats entering their golden years, Essay Fiesta can be trusted to be left at home alone without wrecking the furniture, but let’s face it, it ain’t the same spunky pup it used to be and you often find yourself thinking if today is the day that you’ll come home from work and find it… well, let’s just cherish the time you still have together.
On Monday, November 18th, come on down to The Book Cellar at 7pm and join hosts Karen Shimmin and Willy Nast for Essay Fiesta’s tenth birthday celebration. Our lineup features a fully potty-trained round-up of some of our favorite Essay Fiestaers:
- Essay Fiesta Godmother Alyson Lyon
- Journalist and Essayist Britt Julious
- Art Teacher and Essay Fiesta Superfan Rachael Kossy
- Writer/Playwright/Performer Barrie Cole
- And more!
As always, the show is free. In lieu of birthday gifts, we’ll be collecting happy birthday donations to support our favorite 10 year-olds at 826CHI.
