Last month we heard from Essay Fiesta co-host Willy Nast; this month we’re hearing from Essay Fiesta co-host Karen Shimmin! Come see Karen, make a final, absolute decision about which co-host you like better, and then declaim your choice loudly and publically.
Karen Shimmin is the co-host of All Write Already!, the “completely unpretentious” literary podcast. Karen also co-hosts and co-produces Essay Fiesta, a monthly live lit show, which takes place at the Book Cellar on the third Monday of every month. (The next one is 9/15!) Karen graduated from Northwestern’s creative writing and theatre programs and has performed around the city.
