Essay Fiesta Reading Series
The Book Cellar
4736-38 N. Lincoln Ave.
Chicago, IL 60625
Bill will be one of several writers reading in the new Essay Fiesta series at The Book Cellar in Lincoln Square. Essay Fiesta features writers reading humorous personal essays, and is hosted by Keith Ecker and Alyson Lyon. The event itself is free, but proceeds from a raffle afterward go to benefit the Howard Brown Health Center.
The reading starts at 7:00 pm, but since seating is limited please arrive by 6:30. Besides its great selection of books (including a small but smart SF section), The Book Cellar offers coffee, wine, beer, cheese, sandwiches, and other goodies. They're also great about special-ordering anything you can't find in the store. The Book Cellar is near the Western stop on the Brown Line.
