826 On 8/26: A Virtual Celebration

August 20th—

Our fabulous Grand Opening has been postponed until the space at 1276 N Milwaukee is completely finished. Stay tuned!

On Tuesday, 8/26, join a virtual chorus of international 826 enthusiasts by tweeting/Instagramming/Facebooking with the hashtag #826on826.

In Chicago, we'll be contributing haiku...but not just any haiku. We want you to write an "8-ku-6," that is, where the first line is eight syllables, the second line is two, and the final line, six.

Your quick 8-ku-6 poem is made
when you
write three li'l lines like this

Feel free to submit an 8-ku-6 based on anything that inspires you. When you've crafted your piece, tweet it at us (@826CHI), post it on our Facebook wall, or tag us on Instagram (@826CHI).
