Although I really wish I was, I am just not a reader. This is, at long last, not a huge problem. The Book Cellar in Lincoln Square has a bazillion events for the book enthusiast or wannabe-book enthusiast, like myself. Among the events, the Essay Fiesta stood out to me.
Essay Fiesta at The Book Cellar (Mon. 11/16)
Starting this Monday evening at 7 p.m., the third Monday of every month at this book store will be reserved for local comedians-writers Keith Ecker and Alyson Lyon to host humorous, memoir-esque tales of Chicago-area comedians, novelists, poets, journalists, bloggers and playwrights.
Hear funny stories, laugh, sip a latte from the instore cafe, look fancy sitting at a book store event AND feel good about yourself. Why? After the readings is a raffle that benefits the Howard Brown Health Center. Boom, the perfect evening. Maybe you’ll even make some bookie friends or score a date for the next Fiesta.
