Saints be Praised -- It's Essay Fiesta!

Yes, it's Saint Patrick's Day, but it's also the third Monday of the month, which means it's time to clean up your act and go to Essay Fiesta.

Tonight's event, dubbed "The Most Sober and Solemn of Essay Fiestas," is hosted by Willy Nast and Karen Shimmin, who will also be your guides to reining in the revelry. The teetotaling lineup is made up of Janna Sobel of Here's The Story; storytelling pro Erin Kahoa; the "knitting master," Maura Clement; Neo-Futurist Dina Marie Walters; and the one woman show that is Jen Bosworth.

Show starts at 7pm at The Book Cellar, 4736-38 N. Lincoln Ave. Get there early to snag a seat, a drink, and/or a book. Admission is free, but donations are accepted on behalf of 826Chi.
