January No Shush Salon: New Beginnings!

Such an amazing first Open Mic* at the Maze Branch of the Oak Park Library! We kicked it off with a group of amazing writers and yummy treats. 

*sans mic, but with a very classic podium!

Here are some snippets of the work presented:

Moving day - mirror magic is the best!

Time only goes in one direction - Charlie

Hammi - The chimps were doing too well a post apocalyptic Abraham Lincoln ... That was when the elephants got involved...

Did we get our daily share of brain plaque? ... He looks good in an olive loaf! ... I put my name in a little box behind the pimento in the olive eye...

...seventy three candles. Even with both of them blowing, it took almost five minutes to get all the candles out. ... Oh hush, Meffy. No one believes you.

If you would like to join us in the future, here's what we've got coming up:

February 25th: "For the Love"

March 31st: "The Wisdom of the Fools"
