Meet our readers: Karen Shimmin

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.

Come to Great Lakes Tattoo, 1148 W. Grand Avenue, this Sunday for stories, savory pies from Pleasant House Bakery, and FREE BEER from Revolution Brewing! Pies and beer at 7, stories at 8.
