One is Bald and the Other One Isn’t

One is Bald and the Other One Isn’t

February 28th—

 We're proud to announce that 826CHI after-school students released their latest compilation, One Is Bald and the Other One Isn't. With cookies in mouth at the release celebration, they read stories  about best friends and pencil super heroes. It ended with the spirited, tragic story of two chicken breasts replete with a recreation of the song and dance the doomed birds performed in the face of the deep frier. Pick up your copy at the Boring Store today!

Clandestine Quest Registration Now Open

Clandestine Quest Registration Now Open

February 9th—

Skulk, scurry and scavenge as you track down clues and secret hideouts in order to solve a great mystery. Where your typical scavenger hunt has much to do with brains, athleticism, and luck, the Clandestine Quest has everything to do with all those noble traits plus cheating.

By wisely choosing from an array of officially sanctioned cheats, you can, perhaps, ensure your team's victory. With the purchase of the cheats, you can, definitely, ensure that 826 Chicago can continue to offer free writing programs to Chicago youth.

The fun takes place throughout Wicker Park and Bucktown on Saturday March 10 at noon. Team registration is now open! Must be 21+. Only $15 per person and that includes a t-shirt! For more information and to be a part of the fun head on over to www.826chi.org/quest.

February 2nd—

We can't say too much just yet about the Clandestine Quest that will take place March 10th in the neighborhood ... other than ... you should be a part of it. We highly recommend, as you glance at your calendar and realize that January has almost already disappeared, to take a look at our Upcoming Events, and plan to be there! 

More Chicken Than Chicken

December 15th—

With the semester wrapping up, we've set the printer, chopping machine and binder into overdrive. Adding more weight to our bookshelves are three new books published by 826CHI: We Suddenly Heard Something Fall, a collection from the high schoolers at Gage Park; It's Not a Book if It's Empty featuring pieces written by Wells High Students, in conjunction with After School Matters; and More Chicken, Than Chicken, the latest from students in our after-school program. Stop by the Boring Store to pick up the latest! They conveniently fit in oversized red socks that may or may not be above a friends' fireplace this season!
